Most R packages (except the base ones) are maintained by individuals
who are listed in the DESCRIPTION file.  You can see this if you type


which shows

Maintainer: David Dahl <dbdahl at stat.wisc.edu>

I don't know if David would see your message in r-devel; I've cc'd
this reply to him.  In general you should send package suggestions
directly to the maintainer, and it's even better if you work out how
to implement the change, and send that.
