Out of curiosity, do you have a problem calling `library(ggplot2)` from the R prompt (after R is finished "spinning up")?

I vaguely recall (~ 2 years ago) that I was trying to load some packages in my ~/.Rprofile since I thought I always wanted them in R anyway and had problems ... I've given up trying to do that, though :-)

So -- doesn't answer your question, but if you have number of libraries you want to load up, but it's a pain to call individual `library()` calls, maybe you can define a .setup() function in your ~/.Rprofile that does all these library calls for you when you come to a point in your (interactive) work that you think you need them.
