[R] binom.test appropriate?

Hi there, 

as part of a 2 x 2 contingency table analysis I would like to estimate
conditional probabilities (success rates) in a Bernoulli
experiment. In particular I want to test a null hypothesis p <= p0
versus the alternative hypothesis p > p0.

As far as I understand the subject, there are UMPU tests for these
types of hypotheses.

Now I know about R's "binom.test" but the help text is telling me it
will test only simple null hypotheses of the form p = p0.

Could someone please give me a hint whether there is a suitable test
or about what I got wrong?

Thanks, Mirko.
