Yes, I was wrong.   have a typo in my script that calls rsync, and the
updates went into a different directory, so the code that I was looking at
was actually the released 1.7.0 code.

Looking at the new code, it appears that the pos argument only applies the
the package explicitly named in library() and not to a any packages it
loads.  Is this intentional?
