Indeed, xtable now has a namespace. The S3 methods are not exported
because they should not be called directly; rather, the generic
function (in this case print) should be called.
The addition of the namespace is really a good. Yes, it will cause
some hicups for folks who were calling the methods directory (tsk
tsk). But the addition fixes breakage that was occuring due to
internal xtable helper functions being masked.
