guix.install: Install R Packages with GNU Guix
This 'R' package provides a single procedure guix.install(),
which allows users to install 'R' packages via 'Guix' right from within
their running 'R' session. If the requested 'R' package does not exist
in 'Guix' at this time, the package and all its missing dependencies
will be imported recursively and the generated package definitions
will be written to ~/.Rguix/packages.scm. This record of imported
packages can be used later to reproduce the environment, and to add
the packages in question to a proper 'Guix' channel (or 'Guix' itself).
guix.install() not only supports installing packages from CRAN, but
also from Bioconductor or even arbitrary 'git' or 'mercurial'
repositories, replacing the need for installation via 'devtools'.
