I encourage you to distribute them. I work with satellite imagery, where you 
need both statistical tools for data analysis and versatile image 
processing/visualization tools.

I agree. Actually, it seems to me that an increasing number of people use R 
for tasks that are not strictly statistical analyses, often as a replacement 
for Matlab.

Thanks for your good work!
