        I see that this could be useful for R-devel, but considering the
volume of traffic and the kind of contents on R-help, I don't think such
tying to the actual source code would be so useful. Perhaps trac could
be used as an integrated interface for r-devel/svn and the bug track
system, and another wiki solution be used exclusiverly for the r-help
community (which includes many people not directly interested in coding
or development issues).
