You could remove the .onAttach() function from the package, which calls
Commander() to start the Rcmdr GUI. Because Commander() performs a variety
of initialisations, however, your function may not work properly in its
absence. It's not possible to know whether you'll run into problems without
knowing what you're using in the Rcmdr package. 

I hope that this helps,
