What is a good method for making a compact table of strings? For example,
I have a categorical variable id=1,2,3 and a string identifier for each
case. Of course, I could

sort id
by id: list string

but my preference is for a table, such as

1		2		3
string a	string e	string x
string b 	string f	string y
... etc.

This would be useful for list types of cases by id, such as types of
outliers or types of organizations.
