 There's command-line tools (written in python, but probably in other
languages elsewhere) to do this:


 their example is:

./gdoc-cp.py --username someone at gmail.com --import --local
files/doc.txt --title "New Document"

 So all you need to do is call that from R with system() and wrap it
up in some R functions.
