I'm trying to find a way for converting multiple lines of text into a
table.  I'm not sure if there's a way where you can use read.delim()
to read in multiple lines of text and create the following data frame
with something akin to rehape()?.  Apologies if there is an obvious
way to do this.

A: 1
B: 2
C: 10
A: 34
B: 20
C: 6.7
A: 2
B: 78
C: 35

Convert the above lines into the following data frame

A             B             C
1              2              10
34            20            6.7
2              78            35
