-Subject: [R] survey package

-A new package `survey' for analysing complex survey samples is on CRAN.
I-t handles stratification, clustering, and unequal sampling probabilities
-in descriptive statistics, glms, and general maximum likelihood fitting.
-The package is still under development:
-  - it doesn't do the finite population correction to variances
-  - it needs some real life worked examples

-Most importantly, though, I don't do this sort of analysis routinely, so
-it's possible that some part of the interface is completely insane from
-the viewpoint of practising survey statisticians. Now would be an
-excellent time to complain.
