We do include the most popular/common R packages from the spatial task
view and have for years. You are welcome to discuss modifying the
selection. There simply isn't room for all of them.

We'll take RStudio into consideration, but it may be a space issue
again. Is RStudio server geographic specific in any way, what about
Shiny for displaying web outputs of sp related functions?

That said, we'd be happy to include an optional script in our svn for
adding all of these after the official build. That way the script is on
disk and can be triggered easily.
