Re: [Rd] simplifying number of R installations on disk

Moreover, one may want to script use of R. And while I use R a lot more on non-Windows systems I do have helper and convenience scripts, PATH settings etc to create packages on Windows. For that I find it a PITA to have to adjust things on each upgrade --- and hence some time ago I stopped accepting the defaults and started to install R into C:/opt/R/R-current/ and treat that as a fixed path. I find this makes my life on Windows easier -- and yes, R_LIBS is also set to a fixed path.
