No, I did not say this.

Well, Gelman changed his site a bit. Few days (weeks?) ago there was a red text at the top of [1] stating that bugs.R was accomodated to work with OpenBUGS. Since bugs.R was base for R2WinBUGS, I conclude that BRugs was not involved here. Since then Gelman was active with his pages and things changed/improved. I do not know what he has done to handle also OpenBUGS. Perhaps Gelman and R2WinBUGS maintainers could tell us and I hope that upstream (by Gelman) changes will find way into R2WinBUGS package.
