i do have R_LIBS_USER set and constantly use it for package installation, but 
i don't have any versioning i can see. i also tested that right now by 
defining a new/empty dir and installing packages, there's no versioning.

ok, that's true -- it's actually not worth the effort. but i still wouldn't 
delete files unseen, but nag the user to have a close look and remove it 
manually if ok.
