#' @description
#' Convert a list of vectors or scalars to a `data.frame` with only one row. Names of the columns correspond to
#' the names of elements in the list. If a vector is one list element it is spread over multiple
#' columns and named sequentially, e.g. `a = c(5,7)` becomes `data.frame(a1 = 5, a2 = 7)`.

#'  of atomic values of vectors.
#' @return (`data.frame`) with only one row, containing the list elements.
