Can anybody tell me why this is happening?

> library( Defaults)
> ls()
 [1] "class"              "foo"                "mlct"              
 [4] "mlctTheme"          "overlayFunction"    "pct"               
 [7] "pri"                "primaryFraction"    "reclassFractions"  
[10] "reclassMatrix"      "reclassNames"       "sec"               
[13] "thumb"              "thumbCheck"         "thumbForest"       
[16] "thumbFractions"     "thumbFractions5min" "thumbStack"

Error: evaluation nested too deeply: infinite recursion /

I got similar results trying to set defaults for unlist() and threw up my
hands, but keep thinking about how useful it would be.
