Or one could set an R_LIBS_USER environment variable to point to a
directory writable by the user, and install the new stuff directly

The OP would need to be careful to ensure that a complete installation
of all new packages are then (re)-installed into the R_LIBS_USER
directory so you don't get any weirdness from loading mismatched
versions of packages.
