[R] scripts with littler

I'm trying to write R scripts using littler (under Debian), and was originally using the shebang line:

#!/usr/bin/env r

However this picks up any .RData file that happens to be lying around, which I find a little disturbing, because it means that the script may not behave the same way on successive invocations.

If you drop the /usr/bin/env trick then

#!/usr/bin/r --vanilla

seems to work, but it also prevents the loading of the libraries in my home directory, some of which I'd like to use.

#!/usr/bin/r --no-restore

doesn't work at all.

Ideally I'd like #!/usr/bin/env r --no-restore

Has anyone else been round this loop and can offer advice?

Cheers, John.
