[R] porting R package to Splus

I am considering getting the rpvm package for running a parallel
virtual machine working on Splus.  That package contains a
considerable amount of C-level code written to interface R with the
pvm3 library functions and of course all of it uses the R macros and
conventions associated with the R-style ".Call".

It looks as though it might be possible to automatically transform
that code to code that would build and work under Splus.  Does that
sound realistic?  If so does anyone have a script of some kind that
performs such a transformation?  If not I may take a crack at it.

Thanks for any pointers or suggestions.
