[R] RPy

I'm curious if there are users of RPy on this list. I've recently created a gui front end using Tkinter for some python scripts I've written for some of our internal operations and I am quite pleased with how this program works.

I wonder if it is possible to also get this gui to run R functions through the use of RPy. Going even a step further, I wonder if it is possible to get this program to run R functions withouth even having R installed on the machine.

Currently, I can use py2exe to create a executable that allows for this gui to appear and for all python scripts to run even if the user doesn't have python on their machine. So (maybe) in theory if I can link Rpy to my gui to run R, I can then use py2exe to compile it and that would allow the user to run the functions even if R isn't on the machine.

I realize this is a broad question and has no minimal commented code. But, if anyone has some experience using Rpy, Tkinter and R I can come up with a small example to see if we could work out a possible way to use Tkinter to run R.
