I often just download the source, find the appropriate function, create an file with an alternate version of it (i.e. plotMeans becomes plot.Means) and modify it to suit. I load all custom functions like that from my .rprofile.

I guess you _could_ recompile the library, but, that might break other things later on. Hence the better choice of your own custom library of scripts.
