As for perl, python, ruby, ... modules: only one software to install/upgrade/
fix security bug, ... : apt

When R packages exist in Debian, I always install them from Debian. So that,
I do not have to re-install them at each change of R version. I do not have
to check if new upstream versions are available neither. apt does it for me.

Now, as for perl (and probably other software with lots of modules), the
creation of a R Debian package from a R CRAN package should be as automatic
as possible (I did not check at all where we are on this point).
