Umm... no, does not work for me yet:

> local({a <- CRAN.packages()
+ install.packages(select.list(a[,1],,TRUE), .libPaths()[1], available=a)})
trying URL `http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/1.8/PACKAGES'
Content type `text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1' length 13514 bytes
opened URL
downloaded 13Kb

trying URL
Error in download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb") :
        cannot open URL
In addition: Warning message:
cannot open: HTTP status was `404 Not Found'

Is it just an issue of the file not haveing reached all mirrors yet?
