R - Benchmark implementation

For anyone looking to get started in R, I’ve created a fork of the challenge repo in which I’ve added an R-implementation of the benchmark algorithm.

The fork currently only has a single additional file benchmark/benchmark.R which creates a file data/submission.csv for manual submission.

In due course it’d be good to update this to a file main.R which is compliant with the submission process set out in the read me. I’ll get around to this eventually, but welcome others input!

As per my final paragraph above: I’ve now created a branch which can run an R implementation of the benchmark using the Docker pipeline (as described in the quickstart instructions).
