Quick question about installing packages on a system where you do not have
root access.  Suppose a person is using R on a shared system where he
cannot write to the installation directory (i.e. /usr/local/lib/R).  What
general advice would you give regarding where to install packages from
CRAN. Should he use the R_LIBS environment variable or maybe .libPaths()
in R or .Renviron?
