I am truly sorry but I am getting lost in your original message. Could you
follow-up and describe (concisely, if possible) what your question is?  Is it
 - installing 4.1.1 or 4.1.0
 - developing a package of yours
 - installing a package ?

You seem to interweave a few strands in ways that make it less clear exactly
what is holding you back.

Sometimes it is a simple lack of resources / time / effort / merit. Something
I meant to tackle is to allow r-base-core to coexist with a (to be written
package) r-base-devel but doing that _cleanly_ with the expect robustness is
a lot of work so I have yet to do it, even after ~ 20 years of working on R
and the r-{base,doc}-* packages as well as many r-cran-* ones.
