Hello All,

Wow, what a response.  There were quite a few good comments, most of
them constructive, so I'd like to compile them together and come up with
a reasoned response.  Just off the top of my head, it looks like most
people like the ideas, but quibble over the implementations.  This
should make for some interesting discussions later.  I have a couple of
ideas for solutions to the problems which I'll outline briefly later.

Also, I'm not a mathematician by any stretch, I simply use R at  work as
a software developer and at school as a student of Management
Information Systems.  So, my solutions are more targeted at the things I
know: usability aspects, information organization, software
architectures, etc.  This means that, I need feedback from practicing
statisticians and researchers as to whether these things are valid.  

Finally, these are NOT complaints, they are suggested improvements.  I
think R is a fantastic little project and is very good.  So, please take
my suggestions as topics of discussion for possible improvement.

Anyway, talk at you later.  And thanks for the great feedback!

Zed A. Shaw
