[R] Programming puzzle...

Dear R guru's,

I'd like to sort the columns of a matrix according to the elements in the
first row, and in case of a tie according to the second row, etc.
In case of a 3xn matrix woppa, something like

colorder _ order(woppa[1,], woppa[2,], woppa[3,])

I just cannot seem to find a way to do this for a variable number of rows,
e.g. if woppa has 10 or 15 rows I now manually cut and paste to have 10 - 15
arguments in the order function. There has to be a clever way to do this...
