Please, no. In the example of a dataframe, this is a collection of heterogenous data. So
zeros(1, 10, class('dataframe'))
doesn't make sense, as the type of the columns is not defined. Now, if x is a dataframe with one line and ten columns,
x(1, :) = 0
is defined, as subsasgn will iterate on columns, casting the RHS to the right internal type.

It seems that the simpler change of

retval = zeros (sz, class (x))

in place of

retval = zeros (sz)

also works, so I checked in that change instead.

The proposed patch is aimed at making skewness return something of the same class as the input. Provided all operations are overloaded, the type of the output is the same as the type of the input.
