I suppose neural nets (e.g., in the nnet package, part of the VR bundle)
sort of fits that description: It has been shown to have the "universal
approximator" property. Read MASS4, or Pattern Recognition and Neural
Networks (Ripley, 1996) for details.
I don't know of anything as automated as you seem to want, but I can say
that if there's one, I wouldn't trust it. There's no Free Lunch after all.
