I've taken a quick look at the 1.2 snapshot to see what is coming. Is it my
imagination or is it quite a bit faster?

I noticed that "R CMD check" now seems to do much more: install, check examples,
check dvi (&pdf?).  I think it is great to have this kind of comprehensive check
of a package, especially once everything in the package is suppose to be

But when I am still in development mode I would also like to be able to run the
pieces separately so that development is faster, and I don't see how to do
that.  I can see how to set   --no-latex, but is there a way to avoid re-doing
install?  (BTW, the usage for check says "Finally, the package is installed into
the log directory" but I have the impression that the install is the first thing
that is done.) Or should I consider "R CMD check" as the thing to do first and
then somehow move the libraries installed in the *.Rcheck log directories into
$RHOME/library so that everything that depends on them gets the new version? Or
should I be somehow be setting things so that $RHOME/library is the  log
