[R] Having R (not the OS) redirect stderr() to stdout()

R users,

I am aware that R can be invoked such that the operating system
redirects standard error (stderr) to standard output (stdout), but I
want to have R itself (not the OS) redirect the connection given by
stderr() to connection given by stdout().  Is that possible?  Perhaps
equivalently, can I make all error messages and warnings go to
stdout() instead of stderr()?  Any suggestions?  Thanks!
