1) Painful to install, and doesn't support a local perl installation
(keeps attempting to go back and use my 5.8.8 instead of my local 5.10).
2) Not on CPAN.
3) Though this is supposed to be bidirectional, R from Perl is not
well supported and apparently does not work for Windows.
4) Doesn't appear to be well-supported in general.
I do not intend on writing a full perl suite for R/BioC analyses if I
end up having to work around problems with the critical module.
