[R] R as a daemon?

I have a GNU/Linux / Unix application in which I'd like to have an R
process running in a persistant state, while receiving instructions (and
data) from another process, and returning results to this process.

My initial thoughts are to set something up with named pipes or such,
but I believe that the R process will terminate when it reads EOF (^D)
from the input pipe.  The client process is meant to be a Python script.

Has anyone experimented with this or developed a similar solution?
