[R] Image processing in R for BMI calculation

"Body Mass Index" is a rather bizarre thing:
body.mass.in.kg / height.in.m^2
I have never been able to find any biological
or physical meaning for this.  Yet clinicians
are solemnly advised to measure the weight to
the nearest 0.1kg and the height to the
nearest 0.1cm.

How do you propose to determine the weight from
a single image?  Even an R package cannot perform magic.
