Yes, but the problem with this is that I now have the fact that this
function requires that package stated in two places - in the body of
the function, and in the examples - adding redundancy which makes
maintenance harder.

I guess what I really want, is some way to throw an error that R CMD
check won't complain about - ie. a special dependency not met error.
