The "SLanguage" package in omegahat is an R and S-Plus collection of
functions addressing some of the incompatibilities.  The functions there
will help with some aspects, but it's not a tutorial and doesn't claim
to be complete.

I'd say that's a place for someone to get some additional ideas, and
some possibly helpful software, once they understand the basics of what
they need to do. More information (including a pointer to some
background discussion) and downloads at
