I don't think this is a good idea. We've always sorted packages by
topic; much as the existing organization is not necessarily great and
a number of packages are not in the right places (and so on),
abandoning it entirely seems inadvisable. Also, dumping all R packages
together would probably tend to encourage people to ignore them.
