If you have time to do that, yes please.  Some time ago I started a
half-hearted migration of R packages from (gnu packages bioinformatics)
to (gnu packages cran) and (gnu packages bioconductor).  It’s not
supremely important, but I think in the long term we’d like to have CRAN
things in (gnu packages cran) and Bioconductor things in (gnu packages
bioconductor), because it’s deliciously unsurprising. :)

Thank you!

Perhaps we could sprinkle some smarts over the CRAN importer to do this
automatically, but with R packages we often have names of methods that
should be upper case (like “Bayes*” or “SNPs”), so I have shied away
from developing heuristics for that.

Thanks for adding more R packages!
