[Not sure if such wishlist item should go to R-help or R-devel...]

It would be nice if an option can be added to the R for Windows installer
that will add the --internet2 option to the command line in the shortcut
that gets created.  Also, is it possible to make that an option that can be
set at the R prompt, or perhaps even better, as the default no matter
how/where R is started?  For those of us behind corporate firewalls, life
w/o --internet2 is not terribly pleasant, and naïve users are too naïve to
remember that...
