It would be wonderful if the CRAN mirror had an easy way to set a "default CRAN

Current behavior is to have to choose a CRAN mirror the first time a package is
installed in a session.  The closest mirror site is always the same for me, and
I wouldn't wish to change it unless it were to be unavailable for an extended
period of time.  I expect I could set it in a configuration file somewhere with
some study, but this is the type of thing that is much more easily and
appropriately done through a GUI.
