Yes, good point.

I was suggesting hard-coding the file name of the ‘R’ executable in
‘kernel.json’, but I see you already did that in your initial patch.
Sorry for the confusion.

On second thought, I think propagating R is acceptable in this case
because a Jupyter kernel is a thin wrapper around a programming language

Unless there are objections, I’ll apply your initial patch.

Apologies for the delay, but I think it was good to have this
