I believe it is fair to say that this is where (S3 to keep it simple)
classes come in handy: Class the sorts of objects you're working with, say
"MyClass," and then write your own summary.MyClass() method.

Subject: Re: [R] summary and min max
Has anyone created an alternative summary method where the rounding is
made only for digits to right of the decimal point?
I personally don't like the way summarize works on this particular
issue, but I'm not sure how to modify it generically...
(of course one can always set digits=something_big but this is not
elegant and unpractical when one doesn't know in advance the magnitude
of a number)
