Just a short clarification (by no means intended to stop the thread):
as you can imagine we are discussing the matter internally in R Core
and the Foundation, but there are different views and we want to
consolidate before we make a public statement.  If all of us were of
the same opinion we would already have made one.

Unfortunately New Zealand, Europe and the US are in quite different
time zones, hence discussions by email take some time.

Best regards,
