Or modifying the C code to conform with the usual functional copy-on-write paradigm used throughout most of R.

>The context is the following. I am passing a list to a function which, in turn, passes it to compiled C code via .Call. The problem is that the C code modifies elements of the list so that, after the R function returns, I end up with a modified version of the list argument. I believe passing to the function a deep copy of the list argument would solve my problem.
