Dear developeRs,

I've searched the documentation, FAQ, and mailing lists, but haven't
found the answer(*) to the following:

When should one specify LazyLoad, LazyData, and ZipData?

And what is the default if they are left unspecified?

(*)Except that
1) If the package you are writing uses the methods package, specify
LazyLoad: yes, and
2) The optional ZipData field controls whether the automatic Windows
build will zip up the data directory or no: set this to no if your
package will not work with a zipped data directory.
