I'm not sure about wide spread interest, but as newcomer to the R/S fold 
I was struck that there were several  biologists/ecologists who were 
obviously very experienced users of R. As ecologists do tend to use some 
procedures that are not main stream, and not commonly found in 
statistical programs, I thought that some of these might have made it 
into a R package.

I would thought that the availability of a "Krebs package" or an 
"Ecology package" would have actually encouraged people to use R. 

I do know of someone who is currently looking for the equivalent of the 
negbinom but not limited to 180 samples. Would that restriction remain 
if ported to R.

My remarks were more of a general nature as R seems to lend itself, to 
those with the skills, to pull together the miscellany of ecological 
data analysis tools into a single program. 

So although, there may not be a widespread demand for a Krebs package, 
I'm sure you would gather a fair number of grateful users.
