Since Guix is trivially extensible, users do not need to wait for the
community to prepare missing packages they may need right now.  Tools
like the new [package importer and installer for
R]( let users of
the R programming language install any R package---from CRAN,
Bioconductor, or any Mercurial or Git repository---by leveraging the
recursive package importing facilities that Guix provides from within
a running R session.  This replaces the need for installers like
`devtools` and exposes reproducible package management features
through a familiar interface within R.
