Looks like this morning, I did the ultimate in foobar to a main prod 
box. I was using apt-get upgrade on the box and totally missed the fact 
that my entire R installation went from 2.10.0 to 2.11.0.

I now have a bunch of pkgs that aren't loading due to the fact that they 
were built before 2.10.0 -- There's some *ancient* packages, like (sma) 
that I was able to figure out what we were using, and pull out the 
relevant functions and just temporarily do a "source('xxx.r')" until I 
can re-build those things into new 2.11 packages.

Am I totally SOL today or is there a way to "reverse" what the heck I 
did this morning to the entire R installation?
