This is just an idea for comment. Perl6, the upcoming version of Perl has
separated out the runtime into a virtual machine called Parrot. There are
already several small languages (one is C-like, one is Java-like and one is
BASIC-like) that target Parrot and given the popularity of Perl its likely that
others may attempt to target it too.
If R could interface easily with Parrot then it might be possible to use this
to interface with a large number of scripting languages in the future with
little or no additional interfacing work per language.
