think it could be quite useful for most r-users to (keep r-project web 
site as functional as today but to) offer a links page complementary to 
other Documentation pages that could link to some of the numerous 
resources (scripts, etc) on the internet in personal home pages or 
academic sites impossible to be catched by a single person. These links 
could be classified by theme such as those in task views or rather 
according to the different areas of statistics. Indeed many answers in 
rhelp ended by "you should have a look at www...".
