Hi Kevin,
It might be just as easy to write R scripts that would do basic
analyses. Users could "source" these scripts in an R session or from
the command line. The scripts would be much more compact than the .exe
files that you describe.

These tools would be distributed to team members to have on their desktops.   I considered doing this in Java, but I am more well versed in R so it would be quicker for me to whip up the varying tools in R than re-learning Java.
