I haven't really used PSPP or R yet, but I don't understand how SPSS compatibility was a reason to write a complete new system rather than a module like the one were discussing.  Can anyone explain this in simple terms?

SPSS compatibility of course.

So you can run your legacy programs, legally :-)-O.

I personally would like to have something like RPSS, ie an R module that
can not only read SPSS tables, but also SPSS programs, but I don't see
it coming just now, but, of course, you are most welcome to write it :-)-O
