Yup, and pretty much the only one :)   

Before Diethelm came out with Rmetrics, we only had isolated bits and pieces,
e.g. some code was in the tseries package.  Rmetrics added a lot of code and
documentation, and also provide more consistent wrapper for existing code
(i.e. similar interfaces to ARIMA and GARCH). There are some areas which
little or missing code, but then that isn't that different in QuantLib :)

Best regards, Dirk
