[Rd] if(!CRAN()){...}

Hello, All:

       What changes are being considered / planned in the management and 
funding of CRAN and R-Forge to handle the near-exponential growth in the 
number of packages?

       I ask, because the developers for fda were asked to cut the test 
time on CRAN to below 5 seconds per *.Rd file.  After spending a few 
days on this, we reluctantly eliminated tests using if(!CRAN()){...} in 
the \examples.  Restricting test times and similar changes will keep the 
current system running a little longer, but would not seem to be 
adequate long term.
