[R] kalman filter in sspir

       To learn why sspir does not have a filter function, you need to 
ask the package maintainer,  Claus Dethlefsen <cld at rn.dk>.  My belief is 
that he, Soren Lundbye-Christensen and Anette Luther Christensen found 
other outlets for their time since they completed the package and the 
companion paper, "C. Dethlefsen and S. Lundbye-Christensen. Formulating 
state space models in r with focus on longitudinal regression models. 
Journal of Statistical Software, 16(1), 2006."

       R works on volunteers.  If you know someone willing and able to 
write such a function, I suggest you contact Dethlefsen to see if they 
are willing to put the package on R-Forge and permit others to 
contribute to the package.  If they decline, you can create your own 
package, e.g., "sspirPlus", that would add the desired filter function.

       Hope this helps.
