I've just installed R 1.6.1 and would like to install all the 
contributed packages I had used in 1.5.1.
It's not too hard to do this manually from Rgui, but I wondered if there 
is an easier way,
something like writing the results of installed.packages() from 1.5.1 to 
a file and
using that with install.packages() in 1.6.1, or just having 1.6.1 read 
what's in rw151/library.
