[R] data.frame with a column containing an array

Maybe a better solution instead of "don't do it!" might be to change:

x[[j]] <- if(length(dim(xj)) != 2L) xj[i] else xj[i, , drop = FALSE]

at: https://github.com/wch/r-source/blob/trunk/src/library/base/R/dataframe.R#L712


x[[j]] <- if(length(dim(xj)) < 2L) xj[i] else do.call("[",c(list(xj,i), rep(list(bquote()), length(dim(xj))-1L), list(drop = FALSE)))

Would this be possible and work?

Please refer to Jeff Newmiller's response. I believe that your further
exploration of indexing a data frame containing an array column
demonstrates his point: don't do it!

As this discussion could now devolve into a morass of personal opinion
(such as the above), if you or others care to continue, please do so
**offlist**. However, I have nothing further to say in any case.
