Yep, we will try and get that sorted out.

No, gaggle/DESCRIPTION looks fine.  I think we just haven't had the
time to install rJava on Windows.  We will try and make that happen.

Short answer: no.

The idea is that packages that can be cross-platform should be.  We
would like package maintainers to take responsibility for making the
needed changes.  At the same time, we (all of us) have limited
resources and working on some platforms is better than none.
