[R] using list to pass argument to function

A brief follow up on an earlier posting. Thanks for the earlier suggestion.

How does it matter if I pass a list or a vector of 
arguments to a function that is written to take individual arguments:

f3args  <- function(a1, a2, a3) { definition}

f1 <- function(b1, b2) {
n <- samplesize
b<- someestimate
c<- anotherestimate
d <- c(n, b, c)
h <- sapply(rep(d, R), f3args)

e <- c(m, n)

k <- sapply(rep(e, R), f1)

Is there a problem with this. Can one pass a vector of arguments to a 
fucntion that is written for individual arguments. What would be a good way 
for doing this?
