[R] Extract naiveBayes details

the Naive Bayes model consists of several tables, one for each 
(categorical) predictor. Using

m = naiveBayes( ... )

you will get (as the help page says):

tables: A list of tables, one for each predictor variable. For each
           categorical variable a table giving, for each attribute
           level, the conditional probabilities given the target class.



I just like to know how to extract details from the naiveBayes model
(package e1071). I mean, for each possible value the model defines how much
it influences the outcome. I want to sort those probabilities and show the
values with the highest impact.
How could I do that?

PS: I tried using []'s to get to the model's internals, however, all I get
is a "list" not a "matrix" I could work with. What am I doing wrong?
