This works fine from an .Rprofile file, although I used the named vector 
syntax of the options()$repositories2 structure.

About the CRAN option in repositories2, when I use a plain vanilla CRAN 
mirror I get the error "does not seem to have a valid repository, 
skipping" .
Is this because reposTools looks for a "repdatadesc.rda" file which is 
not found in general on CRAN repositories?
