The second class of package interests MYPKG only for specific task. For example, I need the "coda" package if one wants to use a specific function of MYPKG that produces a MCMC chain. What is the best way to require the package? Inside the function that request it?

The relation between the third class of packages and MYPKG is very tricky. For example, from the MASS package MYPKG only uses "ginv" to get the generalized inverse. "ginv" is an important function, i.e. it is used in many functions. Do I have to require MASS? Or should I just include only "ginv" in the package?

Thank you for patience.

Giuseppe
