I suspect this is pretty easy, but I'm having trouble figuring it out. 
Basically, I have a list of data frames such as the following example:

list(A=data.frame(x=1:2, y=3:4),B=data.frame(x=5:6,y=7:8))

I would like to turn this into  data frame where the list elements are 
essentially rbind'ed together and the element name becomes a new 
variable. For example, I would like to turn the list above into a data 
frame that looks like this:


Appreciate any pointers.
