Setting --sdi in R 2.3.0 beta for Windows

Fox, John
Dear r-devel list members,

I find that adding --sdi to the Target field in the short-cut for R is
ineffective in R 2.3.0 beta for Windows (version/platform details below).
Setting MDI = no in the Rconsole file works, however.

It's probably a bit late to request this for version 2.3.0, but it would be
nice to be able to select either the SDI or MDI in the R Windows installer.

Regards,
 John

Thanks, I'll fix that.

It's hard to make changes to the installer because of the many
translations of installer messages that are required.  I'd say it's now
too late to ask the translators for a new translation for 2.3.0.

I'm not surprised. Perhaps this can be a feature request for the next
version.

I'm sorry that I didn't think of this earlier.
