[R] .Last() and namespace

Dear R-help list,

 for a package that uses Rmpi calls and a namespace,  I need to define a .Last() function to call mpi.finalize() - directly before R quits.

 The hooks like on .onUnload are not useful in this case, because they are not executed when the R session is finished.  

 The defined .Last() must be in the base namespace to be executed, is there a better way to do this than this hack :

  eval(expr=".Last" <- function() mpi.finalize(), envir = .BaseNamespaceEnv) ?

Thanks!

Ralf.
