[Rd] Integrate R in perl6

Perl6 is not great to do maths, even at basic level.  So a dedicated
sub-language ("slang" in perl6 linguo) would make a lot of sense indeed, and
R would be a natural choice (other possibilities are octave and J).

I don't know much about R, I've used it a little bit once but have forgotten
pretty much everything since then.

I know Perl 6 much better, but I'm not familiar with all subtleties of
NativeCall, nor with how to create sublangs (we should take Inline::Perl5 as
an example, though).

If R has a C API (does it?), it should totally doable.

First step would be to create a github repo, wouldn't it?
