R Package Installation from Remote Repositories, Including 'GitHub'

Download and install R packages stored in 'GitHub', 'BitBucket', or plain 'subversion' or 'git' repositories. This package is a lightweight replacement of the 'install_*' functions in 'devtools'. Indeed most of the code was copied over from 'devtools'.
