As you noticed, that package has some problems that prevent it from
passing R CMD check, so don't hold your breath waiting for R-Forge to
build it. (Also, don't expect the documentation to match the code)
If you're going to use code that is under development, you need to
learn to use svn and how to build packages from source. If you have
trouble building from source, follow up on R-help.
