[R-SIG-Finance] holidayNYSE missing some

This is deliberate behavior.  If you check the code, the third-to-last
line is as follows:
	ans = ans[!(as.POSIXlt(ans at Data)$wday == 0 |
as.POSIXlt(ans at Data)$wday== 6)]

You could make an alternate version of holidayNYSE that omits this line,
if you like.

I'm not sure if this is the correct list to email this too, but it
appears that at least in R 2.5.0 that the holidayNYSE function in
fCalendar does not include holidays that occur on Saturday.  E.g.
holidayNYSE(2004) does not list Christmas.

Thanks, John.
