[R] leaps and bounds

Dear friends. On the Bayesian averaging homepage http://www.research.att.com/~volinsky/bma.html I found 
some S code some of which perhaps may run in R. There was a call to an algorithm possibly within S but not supported by R 64.1: "leaps and bounds". I guess it is a minimization step. Can anyone clarify the algorithm and perhaps even give a pointer to some code ?
I guess this may be somewhat above my level of understanding but I feel much attracted to the concept of model averaging, as far as I can grasp it, and would like to experiment with it.

Any help much appreciated.
