Thanks to all of you for your advice. I will read up on namespaces and start using them to "protect" my internal function from name clashes with other packages, and endeavour to my public functions unique names.

I know other languages (eg. python) separate loading a package and including it in the default namespace, do you think R will ever move to such a system?
