It would have to be a patch to R-devel (as R 1.7.0 is out, and R.1.7.x
will be bug-fix releases).  So do make the patch against the current
R-devel.  The FAQ section `5.6 How can I contribute to R?' looks rather

You could also send to the R-bugs repository marked for the `wishlist', or
tell us (R-devel or R-core) what the `new features' are and seek advice
from a member of R-core who responds -- the latter looks the best idea for
a substantial enhancement.
