?sm.density describes the value returned by those function calls, which 
includes "the values of the density estimate at the evaluation points". 
   The evaluation points may be different between the two datasets, but 
you could use approxfun to generate functions doing linear interpolation 
for each of them, and then evaluate the density difference whereever you
