[Rd] if(!CRAN()){...}

Hello, All:

       What changes are being considered / planned in the management and funding of CRAN and R-Forge to handle the near-exponential growth in the number of packages?

       I ask, because the developers for fda were asked to cut the test time on CRAN to below 5 seconds per *.Rd file. After spending a few days on this, we reluctantly eliminated tests using if(!CRAN()){...} in the \examples. Restricting test times and similar changes will keep the current system running a little longer, but would not seem to be adequate long term.

       Thanks,
       Spencer
