	.RData files are *not* machine-independent!  Thus, it doesn't mean the
	file is corrupted if it won't load on another machine.   

Minor correction.  Under Unix we now use the XDR library (if available)
to read and write the .RData files, and to that extent they are machine
independent.  I happily move .RData files between Intel and SPARC with
no problems.  If we could get a portable XDR (including windows and the
Mac) we could really be machine independent.
