[Rd] Compiling R scripts

Dear R Developers,

A recommendation for future development.

It would help if R scripts could be compiled into an executable, or a library. Speed is the main issue (I run a large scale monte carlo in R which is very slow). However, it would also make it easier to link R into other applications, easier at least than the COM infrastructure under Windows.

Finally, it would make it much easier to farm R apps: rather than distributing all of R and necessary libraries onto each client, and making sure each client is always up to date as libraries for a specific script change, it might be easier just to distribute a simple executable across all nodes.
