In theory.

In practice you need a time machine as I just something rejected for a test
that did not exist when I submitted :-/

Until the package "timeMachine" appears on CRAN, I do keep an svn checkout
which I update about once a week.  I have a little build script which I
posted once and which I'd be happy to send to you but I can't show it in
public for risk of ex-communication as it builds in the very verboten place
(and no, I've never been bitten but yes I do make distclean too).
