  This is 'R-golf'. Perl golf competitions are quite common and usually 
result in seriously obfuscated code.

  Perhaps someone would like to run an R-golf contest for the 
R-newsletter (crossword fans: solution to the crossword I set in the 
last one is coming in the next R-newsletter)? Perl golf contests are run 
from here [http://perlgolf.sourceforge.net] if you want inspiration.
