If you haven't already, you might try "findFn" in the sos package to 
look for other functions that do things similar to what your functions 
do.  If your package offers some functionality not present in other 
packages, I'd encourage you to submit it to CRAN.  Again, if you haven't 
already done this, you might wish to add links to functions in other 
packages that do similar but different things.  Spencer
