[R] Dream of a wiki GUI for R

I should have read the following page on R_Extension_for_MediaWiki
Has anybody seen an <Rform>...</Rform> online example page in English?
I really wish wiki.r-project.org be equipped with parameter input
interfaces and convenient R codes submit choices. Any donated Rweb,
Rcgi or other R server can be the redirected server-side and the
professional security burden can be avoided for wiki.r-project.org
