Well, I don't know myself.

Paul, there are quite a few people eagerly waiting for your time-series
package to appear on CRAN !!
	please keep on

Ross plans to change and cleanup the R setup such
that either Fortran or f2c  will be required in a future release anyway.

On the other hand, there's currently 
which define
and	POW_DI

You may augment these by  POW_II and POW_RI
and send your patches to R-devel....


Probably, Ross should correct or augment these statements ...
