[R] HTTP User-Agent header

I am using R in an environment where the HTTP proxy server blocks browsers that do not send User-Agent strings. Through some testing, we have determined that R, by default (2.3.1) does not send a string when performing the chooseCRANmirror() function. Is there a setting that allows us to manually set the User-Agent value?

Thank you, James
