I think Google's filetype searching can be very useful. This was 
discussed on R-help last May. Someone also pointed out that searching in 
this way would bring up lots of Rebol code, but that's easily weeded out:

filetype:R -rebol apply

and of the 10 hits (of 12,300) on the first page of results, only 1 
points to an R project website.
