Me too, however let me encourage you not to be shy and to put the
details of your on to this mailing list, and to ask Martin if you
may put the R code for the exercises into the R archives.

BTW we may need to be careful using the name `R code' or
`R-code': it already means something else and the potential for
confusion is enormous.  R-code is a commercial front-end to
lisp-stat and is used extensively in the recent book by Dennis
Cook (& Co.) on regression and graphics.  (Sorry, I have
forgotten the exact details, but it was reviewed on p. 53 of the
Winter 1996 issue of `Chance'.  I have a very selective memory...)
