[R] function for linear regression with White std. errors

Dear Brian,

How about sqrt(diag(hccm(mod)))? If that's too onerous, then you could
define a function to do it, e.g.,

  wse <- function(mod) sqrt(diag(hccm(mod)))

and then enter wse(mod). If you want a more complete, table-like summary of
the model using White standard errors, then you could easily write a
function to provide that.
