[R] rbind(NULL,NULL)

In the time honored spirit of wishing to do nothing well, could I suggest
that the Splus (versions 5 and 6)  response to:

> rbind(NULL,NULL)

is preferable to the R response:

> rbind(NULL,NULL)
Error in rbind(NULL, NULL) : attempt to set an attribute on NULL

This is on:

platform sparc-sun-solaris2.8
arch     sparc
os       solaris2.8
system   sparc, solaris2.8
major    1
minor    4.1
year     2002
month    01
day      30
language R

It is tempting to conclude from this that Splus does nothing better than R,
but it is always dangerous to generalize from one example.
