Dear Roberto

I think it is possible to do this but I wonder whether xtable for all 
its virtues is suited to this sort of task where you have some highly 
structured data and also some oddments. You might find it best to write 
your own wrapper which uses Wolfgang's suggestion for the model results 
and then concatenate which oddments you want.
