OK.  One would have thought that the checks on CRAN would be
consistent with the package pages which link to them.  The summary
table at check_results_sqldf.html does not actually give the version
that is being tested so its only by clicking each of the links on the
summary table that one would uncover this inconsistency.

Regarding quoting, the mail server seems to reject posts from gmail
for all sorts of unknown reasons and quoting large posts very well
might be one of them so one has to be extremely careful.  For a while
(this is some time ago) I was unable to post at all but over time
learned that if I was sure to bottom rather than top post and not
quote too much then it would get through.
