Anyone vote for deprecating the library() function and renaming it
use() or requiring require() instead?
I mean, when I go get a book out of our library, I don't say "I'd
like to library Case Studies in Spatial Point Process Modelling".
Maybe we should use 'borrow(package)'? Then it might be clear you were
getting a package from a library, and that you magically put it back
at the end of your R session....
Slightly silly mood this evening
