Actually, we'll be discussing tools to make packages in general that can work in both S-PLUS and R, and also how to make some S-PLUS-only libraries available in an open-source environment as well as working with package authors to port R packages to work in S-PLUS.

We'll be discussing this in detail at the S-PLUS User Conference, but I'd also welcome any thoughts package authors and package users might have about making packages widely available in both S-PLUS and R environments. I'll summarize emails sent to me to this list.
