I can't speak for Roger, and my original post wasn't about R, but R can do a number of things that haven't as yet been incorporated into SAS. Why shouldn't there be more support for doing such capabilities? Last time I checked, Excel doesn't offer a way to read SAS files, but SAS still supports Excel and even offers a way to meet such a need.

I think the entire analytical community would have appreciated such integration of SAS and R.
