install.packages warning

I typically install packages from a local site:

> install.packages("x:/tpm/",CRAN=NULL)
updating HTML package descriptions
Warning message: 
argument `lib' is missing: using C:/PROGRA~1/R/RW1051/library in:
install.packages("x:/tpm/", CRAN = NULL) 

The warning doesn't bother me, but I've had to help other people who see
"warning" and decide to panic.  

May I suggest changing "Warning message" to something less scary, for
example "Note:".
