[Rd] Recommendations for a quick UI.

Hi. This is my first post to this list, I seem to be graduating to from
the r-help list. :-)
I'm trying to wrap my R package in a GUI such that when the user
launches the app, they see my GUI window and never interact with the R
console at all. I don't have any fancy requirements for the GUI itself--
all it needs to do is collect input from the user and pass the input as
arguments to an R function, which writes the results to a file.
I read the R Extensions Manual section about GUIs, and it seems like
overkill to write the thing in a compiled language and link against R as
a library when there are dozens of different interpreted cross-platform
GUI toolkits out there. Does anybody know of any functioning examples of
packages (or other add-ons) with GUIs that run R silently in the
background which I can study? Do they use the "R CMD BATCH" mechanism,
or something else?
