[R] Discretization of numeric attributes

Dear R-helpers:

I am interested in discretization methods for numerical attributes, as they 
are reported in the 'machine learning' community. For example, the work of 
Fayyad & Irani (IJCAI-93), Kononenko, entropy-based approaches, MDL 
principle, the C4.5 approach, etc. I am especially interested in those 
methods that take a factor as goal target into account for discretizing 
continuous-valued attributes.

Is there an implementation of any one of those methods available in the 
many libraries available for R ?
