[R-SIG-Mac] Determine GUI status

Is there a way to programatically
check whether the R session is
running with R.app (versus, say
running in Emacs ESS mode in an
Emacs buffer)?

I'd like to programatically decide on
appropriate plot devices etc.

I've checked Sys.info() and related functions
but I'm not noticing R.app info in
any returned fields.  Either I missed
something or I haven't found the right
function call yet. 

Any info appreciated.
