[R] Packages and their Management

I was reading with interest Prof. Ripley's article in the May 2005  
edition R News entitled "Packages and their Management in R2.1.0".

Does anybody know if it is possible to install.packages() directly  
from a Subversion repository; I thought it might be possible to add  
an option method="svn" to the function?

Ideally, one might want to add the Subversion version number to the R  
package version in the DESCRIPTION file for consistency.

Any ideas?
