Although my preference is the command line, for those who want a GUI, I
can't help but think that the path of least resistance is to write a
plugin for gnumeric that calls R as a slave process. I haven't checked
out the gnumeric plugin api, but my guess is that it would allow you to
add menu items and write dialogs. As pointed out, someone new would have
to pick up the ball and run with it. Lets not divert effort away from
developing R itself.
