If you are using it "like a regular R app" then you _are_ using the R  
Mac GUI. Only if you were opening Terminal.app and then typing R at  
the command line would you be using the unvarnished version of R. With  
the GUI running you have menu items including "Packages&Data" and the  
Package Installer in that menu is very handy.
