Often, classed R objects (e.g., those representing text documents in
packages NLP and tm) contain information that can be

content can be arbitrary, and metadata are collections of tag/value
pairs represented as named or empty lists. The
meta() getters and setters aim at providing a consistent
high-level interface to the respective information (abstracting from
how classes internally represent the information).
