Thanks to all of you for your advice. I will read up on namespaces and
start using them to "protect" my internal function from name clashes
with other packages, and endeavour to my public functions unique

I know other languages (eg. python) separate loading a package and
including it in the default namespace, do you think R will ever move
to such a system?
