Version 2.2.0 of package bcp is now available.  It replaces the suggests of
NetWorkSpaces (previously used for optional parallel MCMC) with the
dependency on package foreach, giving greater flexibility and supporting a
wider range of parallel backends (see doSNOW, doMC, etc...).

For those unfamiliar with foreach (thanks to Steve Weston for this
contribution), it's a beautiful and highly portable looping construct which
can run sequentially or in parallel based on the user's actions (rather than
the programmer's choices).  We think other package authors might want to
consider taking advantage of it for tasks that might be computationally
intensive and could be easily done in parallel.  Some vignettes are
available at http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/foreach/index.html.
