It shouldn't. The "beauty" of it all as that we are using C level interfaces
(as imposed by the R API) which generally stay stable. I can definitly use
old packages on Linux along with newer changing ones.

That said, I also know that Uwe rebuilds all 'depending' packages (and Rcpp
now tickles quite a few rebuilds) so even though "it should not" it actually
"might" depending on the flavor of OS you are running.
