[R] postgres/R access problems

I was asking about which R *package* and version: R itself does not
interface to any DBMS, but there are several ways to interface to PgSQL
and they are *packages* like RPgSQL, which has different versions in
different repositories (although AFAIK none are current on CRAN).
(There is also a dbi.something package.)
That's the vital piece of information: db.connect is not a part of R per
se, and that seems to be where the problem is.
