This is done by calling a specialized version of the function defined in the given class. In the present version, the objects must inherit from amsr, so the action is to call composite,amsr-method().

objects that are supplied as arguments are averaged in a way that makes sense for the object class, i.e. taking into account the particular bad-data codes of that particular class.

# S4 method for list
composite(object)
