pspp and R?

PSPP sounds like a great idea, I look forward to seeing it realized. I'm wondering if you folks have considered using R ( as the statistical engine of PSPP, with PSPP providing an SPSS-style user interface? this could potentially speed up development of pspp, in terms of providing stats, and could make R a lot more user friendly for people used to SPSS (e.g., most research psychologists). R has been adapted to be call-able from within perl, for example, so I am pretty sure that what I am suggesting is feasible (no idea how easy, of course). R is widely respected, and has a strong and active development base.

just an idea,
