Personally, I think that there is little harm in releasing a package
if it does something useful in a not-totally-broken way. Especially if
you plan to extend it.

I wrote the hmm package, which is basically only two functions, but
that's all one needs to work with hidden Markov models, so that's all
there is (I *am* busy expanding its functionality that's needed in a
program I'm writing, but the basics are already there). I also
uploaded the kmeans package, which exports a single function -- a
friend of mine had the code, and it was useful to me, so it might be
useful for others. And what does a clustering package need besides a
cluster function?
