[BioC] Rgraphviz on CRAN ??

If Rgraphviz can not be on CRAN for all standard platforms then I would say that dual hosting makes only little sense.
But - it is a pitty that the Windows binary does not pass the checks (on windows) because if Rgraphviz was on CRAN then things would be easier (in terms of building packages which depend on that package).

Seems Soren is looking for a Windows binary, which indeed is not there
(see http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/Rgraphviz/index.html), with

is also hosted on BioC and does not pass the checks on CRAN.
Please see its BioC version.

To simplify matters, should we stop dual hosting?
