[S]: Arguments to table()

I am trying to construct a contingency table of factor levels defined
as (say 3) columns of a dataframe, X.

table(X) gives a one dimensional table.

apply(X,2,table) gives 3 marginal tables.

table(X$V1,X$V2,X$V3) gives the correct answer but isn't a useful
method for a general dataframe.

There is obviously a simple solution, but not so obvious to me.

Thanks in advance
