FYI, there appears to be a problem with RCurl on Windows, most likely due
to building against an old version of OpenSSL. Or at least that's what
Google tells me. Anyway, reproducible code:

> library(RCurl)
> url <- "www.uniprot.org/mapping"
> params <- c(from = "ACC+ID", to = "PDB_ID", format = "tab", query =
"P31946 P62258")
> getForm(url, .params = params, .opts = list(FOLLOWLOCATION = TRUE))
Error in function (type, msg, asError = TRUE)  :
  error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert protocol

I sent the same to cran using r-project.org, which is the email for the
maintainer. So they have been notified, but maybe somebody knows whomever
is actually maintaining RCurl, and can pull a string?
