R-beta: Splus -> R migration issues

I've recently installed R for RH5.0 Linux and been considering moving
existing work from Splus (Windows, 4.5). Also installed the win95 R, but
this doesn't seem to work as well, and in any case the idea is to move
toward Linux.

1 I attach and detach directories freely and often in Splus. Is it
anticipated that it will be possible to do this in R in the future?

2 The ascii representation of Splus objects produced by dump() seems not to
be readable by R load(). What prospect for interoperatiblity in the future?
I note the limited facility of save() and load() at this point, but
vectors, two dimensional arrays and functions would suit my needs.
