Row bind matrices whose column names may not be the same

1 | ```
smartRbindMat(..., distinguish = FALSE, filler = NA)
``` |

`distinguish` |
if |

`filler` |
The character to insert into the final matrix for those empty elements which occur when not all the matrices have the same column names. |

`...` |
matrix objects (separated by commas), a list of matrices, or a character vector containing the names of matrix objects |

Produces a matrix with a union of the column names. Empty elements
resulting from different column names are set to the value of
`filler`

.
