For S4 objects, character indexing should use slots #200

I can't seem to access S4-object slots through character indexing directly in map_*. However, it works as intended with pluck. AFAIK the selection in map is powered by pluck so it seems weird that it does not work. See reprex:

s4_obj <- setClass(
  "test object",
  slots = c(first_slot = "numeric",
            second_slot = "logical"),
  prototype = list(first_slot = 1:10,
                   second_slot = TRUE)

example <- s4_obj()

#> An object of class "test object"
#> Slot "first_slot":
#>  [1]  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 10
#> Slot "second_slot":
#> [1] TRUE

example %>% map("first_slot")
#> Error: `.x` is not a vector (S4)

example %>% pluck("first_slot")
#>  [1]  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 10

EDIT: Nevermind, it seems as if this functionality of map has been moved to the pluck function.

You need to put the object in order for it to work with map.
