Proposal for a new feauture on summary applied to numeric class

IAGO GINÉ VÁZQUEZ
Dear all,


Following the indications given in https://www.r-project.org/bugs.html, and as I wish to submit a feature request, I ask about it first on here.


The function 'summary' from the package 'base', when applied to numeric vectors returns the quantiles together with the mean of the vector, besides the cardinal of NA's. I think it would be suitable to return also the standard deviation and/or the variance.


What do you think?


Thanks!

Iago
