[R] automatic call generation for aov()

I am writing down a general function to implement the bootstrapF method 
for repeated measures anova.

I am passing the function several data frames:

y = dependent

subj = subject identifiers

b = between-subjects factors (number = NB)

w = within-subjects factors (number = NW)

after grouping of all these variables in a single data frame the aov() 
call looks like this:


Now, I am stuck at trying to have the bootstrapF function creating 
automatically a call to aov().

I was thinking about passing the call as a string, but I am not sure 
this is possible (and can't find references to such a method using 
RSiteSearch() ).

I am also wondering whether this could be done in a more elegant way.

Thank you,
