[R] outer join of xts's

It is not clear what multiway left join means but merge.zoo (though
not merge.xts) supports a generalized all= argument which is a logical
vector having the same length as L that can be TRUE or FALSE for each
object merged. The objects corresponding to TRUE will have all their
times included in the result but the ones with FALSE will only be
included if they correspond to an already existing time. merge.zoo is
R based whereas merge.xts is C based so I would not expect it to be as
fast although it is more powerful.
If All is the logical vector having the same length as L then:
Lzoo <- lapply(L, as.zoo)
do.call("merge", c(Lzoo, list(all = All))
