In an email to the help list John Chambers 
wrote about the function helpSilent which is in the methods package, 
pointing out that there is no restrictive reason to be in this package.

I did not know about this function and just incorporate it in several 
functions of the geoR package where a much less elegant solution was 
being used.

I guess other packages could use it as well.
Therefore, would be an idea to move trySilent() to `base' ?
