R objects are held in memory.  All data objects are saved to a disk file
when you exit from R [you will see a little message asking if you want
to save them].  This is holdover from an original desire to have R run on
Diskless Macs.  I am looking into fixing it now.

You can use the "save" and "load" functions to save groups of data
objects and then reload them.

Doing this like attaching directories (and other kinds of data objects
(such as NetCDF etc) are planned, but don't hold your breath.
