Not currently, but it would be a nice little project for someone to 
write that, and also code to help retrieve objects from a .rda file 
after it had been damaged and was no longer loadable by R.  My normal 
advice would be not to use .rda files to save things, but sometimes the 
alternatives are not nearly as convenient.
