Dear R-Developers,

The traffic today on s-news where Terry Therneau, I, and others
are reporting some of the problems we have had using or
converting applications to SV4 reminded me of something
Duncan Temple Lang had mentioned to me a year ago that
I wanted to follow up on.  I recall that Duncan said either that if SV4
were to be implemented in R that it would not be
the default behavior, or that through an option the
new behavior could be turned off.  Would you mind
bringing me up to date on this?  I sincerely hope
that what I thought Duncan said last year still
applies.  Thank you very much for your consideration.  -Frank
