Constructing lists with

list(name1=name1, name2=name2, ...)

is tedious when there are many objects and names are long. Is there an R
function that takes a character vector of object names as an argument and
returns a list with each objected tagged by its name? Going in the other
direction, is there a function that takes such a list as an argument and
instantiates each object in the list under its name?
