[R] Nested source()s

I had an error message while running a macro from Yudi Pawitan's web site:

> source("ex2-13.r")

Error in parse(file, n, text, prompt) : syntax error on line 2

Inspecting ex2-13.r I found that the error was generated by another source() command.

Clearly R does not like nested source()s, which is fair enough when you think about it. Still it's something that you might want to do. Does anyone know how to get achieve the substance of what nested source() commands would give you?
