That's two last things if my counting is right :)
a) We cannot avoid as the two `package systems' for R and Debian do not know
about each other. Just run
in an R session and see. It simply runs down the list in R_SITE_LIBS and
checks all directories to generate the list of avoidable packages.
b) No issue at all. Worst case is probably that a package that is older
_may_ get found if the search abort on the first hit. I am not sure if
that is in fact the case though.
Integrating some Debian knowledge into install.packages() and
update.packages() would make for a nice project. Anyone interested ?
Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
