[Bioc-devel] adapting 'biocinstall' to my institute's needs

I hope this email is not misplaced. I searched the archives and did not
find the information I am looking for.
I have a number of R-shy users. One big hurdle they face is installing
packages. 'getBioC' and 'biocLite' seem like just the right approach.
I want to emulate this approach by creating a local version of that
my users can easily source and execute. They will then be able to
load (or update)
all the R and bioc packages they need, along with local packages and
code we write.
Examining the source for getBioC leads me to 'biocinstall' but -- sorry
if this is obvious, and I just missed it -- I can't find the source
of that function, to study, learn from, and adapt.
Could someone clue me in? I welcome any comments on the overall plan
