[R] Linking R to GIS

Dear All,
Has anyone worked with linking R to both ArcView and MapInfo GIS systems? My
desire is to capture object selection from GIS and pass to R and to return
spatially based statistical model results from R to GIS. If both could
simultaneously access the same data file this would be a bonus.

My inclination is to put together some routines based on ODBC linking but
thought I would seek like minded people before 
pressing too far into the evaluation.  Any thoughts or suggested alternative
directions or shared examination would be welcome.
