Sorry Rodney - I don't think I explained clearly enough.  The homebrew
system always puts the symlinks into /usr/bin, whichever software you
are installing.  As you say, R already does this on mac -- what I guess
I'd like to know from windows users then is whether there is an
equivalent of /usr/bin (i.e. that is always on the PATH) where a symlink
to R can be put?
