[R-sig-Geo] zonal statistics as table

Hi Joseph.. With datasets that large, in my experience you're looking at
spatial subsetting to get something manageable and I've given up on zonal()
as it's just too slow for my needs. Rather, I would do your own feature to
raster conversion on the polygons based on the raster layer so cells
overlap exactly, then for your subsets convert the data to data.table
objects and run your aggregations using that very fast package.

When it comes to zonal statistics R is just a bit cumbersome for anything
larger than the smallest datasets.  I'd be happy to hear anyone else's
thoughts and be corrected if there's a more efficient way to do it!
