How did you construct that search string?
Do you think something like this should be added to some other
general search capability like the sos or CRANsearcher packages?
I ask in part, because there will be a session at useR!2017 on
"NAVIGATING THE R PACKAGE UNIVERSE", and this seems possibly relevant to
that discussion. (That session is scheduled for Wed. July 5, from 17:00
- 18:30. The organizers of that session expect that a fair portion of
that time will be devoted to discussion of other possibilities, hoping
we can build a team who will work to improve the ability of users to
find what they want. See
