Basilisk Installation Utilities
Implements utilities for installation of the basilisk package, primarily for creation of the underlying Conda instance. This allows us to avoid re-writing the same R code in both the configure script (for centrally administered R installations) and in the lazy installation mechanism (for distributed package binaries). It is highly unlikely that developers - or, heaven forbid, end-users! - will need to interact with this package directly; they should be using the basilisk package instead.
