Dear Erin,

I wrote the Rcmdr package because my undergrad intro stats students are much
more comfortable with point-and-click interfaces. You're in a computer and
math department, however, while I'm in sociology -- I would have thought
that your students wouldn't have trouble with command-driven software.
