  data entry was one of my first little projects in R. I really wish
  that I had enough time to make it better. It was written long
  before data frames were part of R. The return of individual 
  vectors is done in data.entry. It is pretty simple to instead
  turn tmp1 (which is a list) into a data frame 
  and return that.
  Having the vectors appear at top level was something we did
  for our students as they were having a hard time believing that
  you needed to assign everything. Now that R is distributed 
  somewhat more  publicly this may need to change. Opinions?
  As for the printing, well that looks like an even larger problem
  than fixing some of data.entry's existing bugs.
