Hello,    

  I need some help on how to create a script which will automatically install an *particular* version of a package from a CRAN-style repository.   All the functions available for installing/updating packages would try to install the newest version of the package.   Thus, what i need is a function lie "update.packages()" or "install.packages()" with an additional argument which will be the version of the package.    

  Thank you,
  Johan.
