I appreciate your kind mention of my effort, Pierre-Yves.  Thank you!

I am dissapointed that you don't see a merge in the future.  I would
like to change that if I can.  What would you like me to change?

It is my hope that the R2spec code will make it possible, eventually,
to build and maintain _all_ the CRAN packages as RPMs, without the
extensive by-hand treatment they now get.  I understand that, if this
is to happen, more folks than just me need to be happy with the
code. :)
