Fair question here, but in this case, I'll actually forward it along
to the R-SIG-Mac list. There are R-SIG groups for Debian, Mac, and
Fedora, though not Windows, just for future reference. You'd probably
be able to get a good answer if we kept it here, but Simon Urbanek
takes care of the R-SIG-Mac and he's the official "Mac Guy" for all
things R and maintainer of the r.research.att.com site so he'll have
the definitive word.
