That sounds more promising than anything that's been suggested so far.
It wouldn't actually have to be done centrally at CRAN, and different

that logistic and linear regression are basically the same thing and
MANOVA is very different, other people think that linear regression and
MANOVA are basically the same thing and logistic regression is different).
