Pierre Legendre's R has nothing to do with this R. As an anecdote: In 
one ms I have managed to use both R's which made M&M kind of funny to 
write, since you had to be careful to say clearly which R you used this 
time. However, even Pierre Legendre's R is freely distributed (although 
I am not sure they are very careful about licensing of all components 
they use).

cheers, jari oksanen

PS. I guess it is appropriate to use this time a quote from Legendre's 
article in my .sig+, in particular because they are some of the wises 
words ever published in The Applied Statistics.
