[R] Symbolic Integration in R

This may be a question to R-development but I'm not sure. Symbolic differentiation is implemented in R (maybe not for extremely complex expressions), but it proves that it can be done. I know that in C++ it can be done (symbolic c++), do you think in R it can be programmed just using the R language without resorting to external sources? Does anyone know or can estimate the amount of resources needed to incorporate symbolic integration capabilities (of course R being an open source, this would be a completely benevolent act on the part of the experts)? The idea would be appealing, in a way it will contribute to the "completeness" of R as a self-contained/sufficient mathematical computing system (like mathematica and more).
