[Rd] Splitting up the micEcon package?

Dear R Developers:

The functions of our micEcon package can be subdivided into 3 categories:
- microeconomic demand and firm models
- sample selection models (mainly selection())
- routines for (likelihood) maximization (e.g. maxLik(), maxNR(), maxBHHH())
   (mainly used for ML estimation of sample selection models)

Although sample selection models are often used in microeconomic analyses, 
they are also used in several other disciplines. Therefore, we are unsure 
whether it is better to keep these different functionalities in the micEcon 
package or to move the sample selection models and the routines for 
(likelihood) maximization into one or two new package(s) (increasing the long 
list of R packages even further).
What is your recommendation?

Thank you,
Ott & Arne
