[R-SIG-Mac] Another beta for RAqua

I have added several minor features to the RAqua


as usual it is R-devel 1.8.0.

I'll soon attack the problem with package installation but before this 
I need to finish part of the GUI.

About package installation: we would like to provide, in the near 
future, precompiled binaries for RAqua at each release of R.

I'm thinking about selfinstalling stuff using apple pkg structures and 
apple installer.
The idea is:
1. I build R packages on a server and make .pkg bundles
2. the user select a package name from a menu (like on R for Windows) 
either on CRAN or on his/her disk
3. RAqua simply "opens" (double click action) on this file
4. the installer starts, an admin pwd is required.

Are there any other ideas/solutions before I start along this route?

(This can be done for Darwin/X11 R as well, but this is not a priority.)

Another thing: I need someone able to design a new icon for the RAqua 
launcher. Actually both StartR and RAqua (the true R) has the same icon 
and you can see two icons of R on the dock when R is running. I would 
like to change the StartR icon. Any volunteer?
