With R 1.3.0, to be out by the end of June, we will have a new category
of `recommended' packages which should be available for each binary
distribution of R.  These will include

	KernSmooth VR boot cluster foreign mgcv nlme rpart survival

Criteria for adding to this list include an acceptable license status,
quality, and amount of ``general'' interest for a package.

Hope this helps.
