My goal is for a user to sit down at a Linux laptop, get to an Rcmdr
type screen, submit jobs on a remote system and then get the results
back in R.
We will assume that the user is naive, and the only thing he/she can
do is get to the Rcmdr screen.
The Rcmdr plugin will have a "submit jobs" menu. The user presses
that option, and gets results, without having to know the "underside".
