Great! I've created a GitHub repository at https://github.com/nalimilan/R2HTML

Please apply for commit rights (or give me your username) and I'll give them to you.

I've pushed fixes for the global assignment issue, at least the warnings
are gone and the tests pass, I've not yet done careful checks. I had to
remove an obscure feature which overrode the fix() function in order to
do clever things when fix() was called during an HTMLStart()/HTMLStop()
session. I don't think this is very useful.
