[Rd] New slimmer R

Hi Everyone,

I know that Kurt is thinking about slimming down the core functions of R
and putting more stuff into libraries.  I was wondering if, as a first
step, thought had been given to re-organising the source code to
separate out the S-language functionality from the base package
functions. I am thinking in particular of the subdirectory src/main
which contains both top-level files such as "memory.c" and base-package
files such as "optim.c".  Would it not be clearer to mount the base
package entirely on src/library and so put the required C files into the
subdirectory src/library/base/src (which currently does not exist)?

Cheers, Jonathan.
