[R] From within R, what are "good" ways to run SQL code contained in a text file?

Running external SQL files that you modify on the fly is almost certainly not a good idea because you should not be parameterizing with string manipulation but with dedicated parameterization code (e.g. [1]). Otherwise you risk encountering Little Bobby Tables (https://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php/Little_Bobby_Tables). Since this requires custom R code anyway, I reject the whole premise of your question.
