Hi All,

I hate to do this (because I always found the R/Debian combo exceptional and I 
never had the time to ontribute --sorry about that--), BUT, the latest r-cran-vr 
for Etch (testing) is

dpkg -l | grep r-cran-vr
ii  r-cran-vr                        7.2.29-1                    GNU R package 
accompanying the Venables and Ripley book on S

and I get the following error if I try to load MASS in R:

Error: This is R 2.3.1, package 'MASS' needs >= 2.4.0

And Etch is still at R 2.3.1 and R 2.4 has not reached it yet! The dependency 
seems to be broken...
