Depends what you mean by "near future".  The gR project
<http://www.r-project.org/gR/> plans to add support for graphical
models to R; this will include MCMC methods.  There's a workshop next
month, at which time some target dates might be set.  I'd guess by a
year from now there'll be substantial progress, but I'm not sure when
the first signs of it will appear.
