[R] conditional import in NAMESPACE

Dear R-help,

Can some one tell me if it's possible to have conditional importFrom() in
the package NAMESPACE file?  Basically I'd like to know if it's possible to
make the NAMESPACE file compatible with R 1.9.0 and those 1.8.1 and earlier.
The problem is that I want to import cmdscale(), which is in `mva' prior to
1.9.0 but in `stats' post 1.9.0.

Any pointer much appreciated!
