There are various format converters out there, including to OFX format. Also to CSV, which would be immediately readable i R, but maybe (I don't really know anything about this) lose too much meta-information. 

Some of the converters are Open Source, although not in R. And there have been queries on R-sig-finance on how to read OFX, which apparently is basically XML.

So it looks like some assembly is required, but puzzle pieces are available.
