OK, I'm looking at Rserve. I get the impression that one needs to start 
a separate server, so it would be difficult to make this transparent to 
a user who installs my package and just wants to do an analysis with a 
GUI. It also appears that there is a separate binary install, at least 
on Windows, which would mean anyone using my package would need to 
install and run something separate. Is that accurate?
