I am assuming you are talking about outputting something other than a
floating point raster?  It is high on my list of to-dos.  I also want
to make sure I support factors datatypes as well, since the Raster*
format supports them.  I've already started on the basic tweaks I need
to make, but it'll be a bit longer before I get to it. Stay tuned!
