[R] Installing packages based on the license

I would like have an automatic way to avoid installing packages that I cannot use due to license restrictions.
For example, the conf.design package is limited to non-commercial use, and since I work for a for-profit business, I cannot use it.
I found out about the license terms of conf.design by chance; I would like to avoid any possibility of a mistake in the future.
Is there some clever combination of grep and install.packages that I could use to limit my downloads to, say, GPL-only packages?
