[Rd] Mods that allow R scripts

I've hacked R so that it can be used to write shell and/or
CGI scripts, e.g. "hello world" can be written as:

	#!/usr/local/lib/R/bin/R.bin --script

	cat("Hello, World!\n");

The mods required to enable this aren't particularly major.
(Adds about 70 lines of code, IIRC.) Anyone else interested
in adding this to the R core?
