it's not a good idea to mix up debian and ubuntu packages (the "sid" indicates 
that it was compiled and packed for the unstable, "*s*till *i*n 
*d*evelopment" tree of debian).

you might like to try to build your own package:

 sudo aptitude install r-base-dev dpkg-dev fakeroot

   # download rkward-0.4.7a.tar.gz and rkward_0.4.7a-1.diff.gz from the 
   # rkward homepage
 tar xzvf /path/to/rkward-0.4.7a.tar.gz
 cd rkward-0.4.7a/

 zcat /path/to/rkward_0.4.7a-1.diff.gz | patch -p1
 chmod a+x debian/rules

 fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage -b -D
   # the "-D" option tells you if you have to install more packages first; 
   # just fetch them with "sudo aptitude install ..." and repeat this step.
   # errors that the digital signature failed can be ignored, because you
   # don't have thomas' gnupg-key, i assume...

 cd ..
   # you should now have your own .deb-package in this folder
 sudo dpkg -i ./rkward_0.4.7a-1_i386.deb

that's it ;-) it worked on my feisty system. if this is the first time you 
compile a package for yourself, i wish you a smooth ride 8-)
