If one tries to add two structures with a different number of elements,
then the shortest is recycled to length of longest. That is, if for
instance you add `c(1, 2, 3)`

to a six-element vector then you will
really add `c(1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3)`

. If the length of the longer
vector is not a multiple of the shorter one, a warning is given.

As from R 1.4.0, any arithmetic operation involving a zero-length vector has a zero-length result.

One exception is that when adding vectors to matrices, a warning is not given if the lengths are incompatible.
