[R] Using invisible function

Dear R-er:

I want to use invisible function in some packages.

I know that triple colon operater is available. However, how can I use all invisible functions in some packages.

One solution is , of course, to use ":::" in every use, but is there any workaround?

It is similar to "using namespace" directive in C++.

using std::cout;
using std::cin;

is triple colon approach, and

using namespace std;

is what I want.

The reason why I want this is to modify function in some packages.

For example, I want to get the SSs in stats::anova.mlm. This is not difficult, but anova.mlm uses many invisible functions, so I have to use ":::" in every use, or, define, e.g. Rank<-stats:::Rank
in my scope.

Thanks in advance.
