[R] Removing "row.names"

I need to completely remove row.names from a dataframe.  Are there other 
ways to remove them (and not anything else) besides:

mydataframe<-data.frame(mydataframe, row.names=NULL)

I realize that this doesn't really remove the row.names; it merely replaces 
the current row.names vector with the numbers 1..nrow (in quotes).
