[R] R and PostgreSQL

I am a user of PostgreSQL. I'm interested in generating cross-tabulations of RDBMS
data. Cross-tabulations are not really possible within the RDBMS paradigm, but
they are part of the base tutorial stuff of R. I can move the data to R using a
copy command in Postgres and a the read.table() function in R. But is there a
better way? Can a system be set up using CORBA or ODBC that lets one access (and
preprocess) the data from within R? What are the limitations on data set size
within R?
