I assume you have thought this through. I just want to point out the  
the lamb1 system is one specific architecture and there may be  
(development) packages that have problems only for specific  
architectures. This is of course mostly relevant for non-R code, and  
I may be a bit biased since I have worked on two packages where the  
platform differences really mattered.
