IRC channel logs

<rekado_>I just got rstudio server to load a different version of R for a user session.
<rekado_>they really just set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to load a different R library
<rekado_>it’s terrifying
<rekado_>it’s a Rube Goldberg machine of RPCs and sessions and state, but in the end they just set LD_LIBRARY_PATH before spawning the rsession binary (which then uses to start an embedded R process)
<rekado_>I can’t fathom why they chose this error prone design over the ESS design of simply spawning plain old R processes.
