I fully agree. Platform-independence is one thing, 
freedom another. R is free-as-in-freedom-software, 
so it would really be a pity not to use a powerful
free-as-in-freedom-language to build R-GUI(s), be it
Python or another one.

This being said, any project to bring R
on any computer in the world is to be praised,
but please let R as such not be contaminated with
a language that doesn't come out of the mouth
of a healthy gnu...

acolyte of service,
