[R] Condor and R

I was wondering if anyone has successfully linked R against the  
Condor libraries so that R can be run as a Condor job in the  
"standard" (not "vanilla") universe. The advantage of this would be  
that due to checkpointing, jobs can be suspended and transferred to  
another node. There is a good overview by Xianhong Xie here:


Unfortunately, the article points out that some restrictions of  
Condor preclude us from running R in the standard universe. Does  
anyone know if this can be overcome?
