Why is it R Core's job to fulfill your wants and desires? I have a
hard time thinking that very busy people would spend extra time doing
something that they may or may not have a direct need for. Write it
yourself or get a group of people together to do it. That what we did
with odfWeave (for better or worse). If the task is beyond what you
feel you can do, fund it.
