With R 1.7.0 imminent, no more compiled packages for rw1060/1/2 will be
produced (unless there are critical bug fixes needed).

rw1070 will look for compiled packages under different names (including
the version number) in a different area of CRAN (which is already
populated).  The intention is to build these automatically in due course, 
and if that cannot be achieved, to update them infrequently.
