Yup. Now I see it too. I'll take a closer look. qbeta(.99,1,10) does
the same stuff. gcc-2.7.2, by the way. Anyone using anything else?

Re. packages, I agree that it's a bit premature. Not so much that
we're not out of alpha yet, but as long as we still find bugs like the
t.test confidence interval booboo, we probably shouldn't encourage
too many of the clueless to use it for real data analysis.
