What is "devtools"? Is it a package for testing R software? (it sounds
more generic)

I chose to use RUnit because of the package name; i.e. on the assumption
it is one of the xUnit family. It is getting the job done, but is less
sophisticated/mature than phpUnit, JUnit, etc. (If you want to discuss
how I think RUnit could be improved, private email please.)
