Please don't spam multiple lists!

And follow the posting guide: you have not given the reproducible 
example asked for, there is no signature block ....

Of course you could waste people's time by submitting a package that 
does not past R CMD check, but you are asked to follow a set of checks 
in 'Writing R Extensions' and the CRAN workers do not have unlimited 
patience ....
