Please forgive another comment on this topic.

The 'type' argument to tools::write_PACKAGES doesn't currently accept 
the 'mac.binary.mavericks' value.  It seems like it should, to make it 
possible to pass the same 'type' argument to all of the package 
generation and manipulation functions?

Error in match.arg(type) :
   'arg' should be one of “source”, “mac.binary”, “win.binary”
