# Explenation for the new keep_order parameter:
# keep_order can accept the numbers 1 or 2, in which case it will make sure the resulting merged data.frame will be ordered according to the original order of rows of the data.frame entered to x (if keep_order=1) or to y (if keep_order=2). If keep_order is missing, merge will continue working as usual. If keep_order gets some input other then 1 or 2, it will issue a warning that it doesn't accept these values, but will continue working as merge normally would. Notice that the parameter "sort" is practically overridden when using keep_order (with the value 1 or 2).

# an example is offered at the end of this code chunk

if(!missing(keep_order))

# some functions we will use soon:
add.id.column.to.data <- function(DATA)
{
data.frame(DATA, id... = seq_len(nrow(DATA)))
}

# add.id.column.to.data(data.frame(x = rnorm(5), x2 = rnorm(5)))
order.by.id...and.remove.it <- function(DATA)
{
# gets in a data.frame with the "id..." column. Orders by it and returns it
