oz() would work fine if there were a frame() function in R.
Since it is only used to clear the screen, the following
temporary is good enough for the purpose

"frame" <-
function () 
plot(1, axes = F, type = "n", xlab = "", ylab = "")

Is there some repository where I can put the sources?

(That's a point, actually.  Are we setting up a library site for
 R software, and if so, in what form should submissions be?)

oz is a shamelessly based on jpn and so that should indeed work
without much effort.
