Thanks for the reply. I need to read up on dynlm.
R.e. factors, I have something that looks like this - the first 3
columns have identifying info, and are the factors that I give to
lattice, whereas the last column is the actual timeseries.
> summary(M.full)
unit_id well_num sampled_on dtw_m
M1 :5 N:5 Min. :2005-08-04 15:30:00 Min. :-1.571
M2 :0 S:0 1st Qu.:2005-08-04 15:45:00 1st Qu.:-1.570
Would the most logical way to use zoo be to create an object for each
element in the factor matrix, i.e. M1N, M1S, M2N, M2S, ... , and
create a list or environment of the objects?
Thanks!

Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often
vague, than the exact answer to the wrong question, which can always
be made precise -- j.w. tukey
