[Rd] Packages for R-CRAN (organizing aspects)

I have some ideas for packages that I want to provide on R-CRAN.

One package alreads is working, but I have some warnings in when compiling. Also I don't know if the libraries in use are only working on Unix/Linux.

So I have some general questions:

    Would other people, who are interested in using the package     on Windows, then look for the other issues?

    (I'm just interested in providing the functionality, and I don't use Windows,

     so compatibility would not be my main goal, if it's using certain libraries;
     but if the code is not relying on certain libs or tools I of course write
     code ANSI-conform, so that it *should* compile on windows too.)

    I mean: I just want to have the work for Unix/Linux, but in general like the     platform-independent approach. I just have no interest, looking at the windows     side too much. Are there people from R-CRAN team, who help at that point to make     things available on many platforms?

    Maybe the name of the reading function should then better be named     read<filefomat> or <fileformat>read ?

    Would it be better to make for each format one different package,     or rather put them all together as a package "Readmisc"?

    For example the following formats I have in mind:

Can you give me some general advice on how to organize this best, so that it also fits into the R / R-CRAN philosophy?!
