Thanks so much for such a quick response!

It would be very nice to have  importFromExcept especially for some of the packages with tons of exported objects.

No, as far as I know. I asked about this on R-devel a long time ago; would be nice to have importFromExcept()

Is there a function to import all the exported objects from a package except a few named ones in NAMESPACE file?

For example, I would like to import all the functions in S4Vectors except fold. Is there a way to  specify this without listing all other functions using importFrom?

Many thanks for your help!
