I would like to drop to your attention the R repositories for some distros
that can be found at http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/.

I consider that they target a different group of users that want the latest
of all. For example the latest ubuntu will not have R-2.9.0. However,
although these repos may provide with the latestof R, there is always a
(small) risk of breaking some things in the distro. The advantage of these
repo is that provides with binaries (at least for ubuntu) for many version
of the distribution and the latest R and the packages available. I can see
that in some older versions they had rkward bur not anymore. Maybe a contact
with the maintainers could help. Just an idea.
