is that limited to certain platforms or coming with 3.5.0? i don't see any 
versioning in my R_LIBS_USER.

it could try to "move" it to R_LIBS_USER, by freshly installing all packages 
to the new location, and only remove ~/.rkward/library if that was successful. 
without the versioning mentioned above it could also actually move packages 
directly, if the targets do not exist yet.

or is that asking for trouble?
