(On Unix/Linux)
Is it possible to set the  --no-save  command line option as an option 
in the .Rprofile file.   I have looked in the sources and do not see 
any obvious (user initiated) ways of changing the command line defaults, 
but I am hoping I have missed something.

I *know* I can write my own shell script wrapper that calls R with 
whatever arguments I want (and I do that).  However there are times 
when I would like to have per-directory control of R, just as the 
Rprofile file does it.

(And yes, it would be trivial to write an R wrapper that looked for a 
file in the local directory that contained command line arguments, 
I just don't want to invent that wheel unless there is nothing simpler).
