Why not consider to build the GUI layer in some other (imho more suitable) language and just call the R functionality from there? Depending on your platform/requirements you could e.g. use Delphi, Python, or some webbased interface (Morfik, php, ...).

Python would be my favorite (but I want to add that I didn't try this out yet, it's only what I probably would check out (as an alternative to an R-based interface)).
