Well, in any event, please do remember that the majority of students taking statistics courses may well be not (future) statisticians, but (future) researchers involved in other things that may include programming and (more likely) teaching. A well designed GUI will certainly "open up" R to users who until now have used (and had to pay for) commercial products to run the boring? assortment of tests they need in their work. Those are now probably a minority (due to the lack of a GUI...?), but once a good GUI gets off the ground, they are bound to become more numerous. It would be nice to have everybody's needs taken into account from the beginning! (Did somebody say altruism there? :))
