It would be convenient if, under R-devel r56422, packages that require re-installation because they do not have a NAMESPACE were marked as old.packages, so their lack of functionality can be discovered more easily.

 > "snow" %in% row.names(old.packages()) [1] FALSE
 > library(snow)
Error in library(snow) :
