creating spatial metadata: best tools/approach?

R-sig-geo mailing list
I need to create XML metadata for some of my outputs (mostly rasters) following the US government standard (FGDC):

In researching what my options are in R, I have found EML:

and the spMetadata function in plotKML:

and, of course, I could use the XML package to simply build and write my own xml.

Does this group have any suggestions as to the most robust and efficient way to accomplish this? Or positive or negative experiences to share? I'm tempted to just use the XML package as then I'll have the most control, but I don't want to be missing anything before I start down that path.

Thanks in advance,
