I may not need it (or get to use it portably), but as far as using Rsockopen, etc. am I right in assuming that a package writer would have to copy the declarations from src/main/basedecl.h into his/her own code in order to utilize them? This seems odd when there's already an exposed (although undocumented) interface with R_Sock*, so what's the point of having R_ext/R-ftp-http.h? Is it just for some xml package?
On a related note, how do I serialize() an R object to a database table column of type BLOB? I've tried using RODBC but was unsuccessfully (see R-sig-DB in Feb archive). I've also looked into RMySQL/DBI but I don't think it's supported yet.
