Sounds good. They are a bunch of very-well-meaning Debian folks looking after
a number of those 900+ packages in the distro, but they sometimes prioritise
Debian views / experience over R and CRAN so issues like this can arise.
Personally I think it is foolish to not take advantage of the very solid
testing CRAN already does but hey can't win them all...  Hope you get that
fixed with some help from them.
