[R-SIG-Finance] CQG Gateway for R

Does anyone have information on a CQG gateway for R like RBloomberg 

Alternately, can the RBloomberg COM client connect to COM on a remote 
machine?  We have a Bloomberg server license but only a limited number 
of terminals, so we have access to the data, but I'd like to avoid 
having to write a custom importer from our database right now if I can 
avoid it.

It seems as though it should be possible to access a remote COM server 
using the COMCreate function (*thus the D in DCOM), as long as you have 
user permissions on that machine.  Any pointers would be greatly
