Hi Tim

 Since we have a package to interface to Amazon's S3
storage system (http://www.omegahat.org/RAmazonS3),
I put together an RAmazonDBREST package that uses the REST
interface.  It is available at
and installable from source via

 install.packages("RAmazonDBREST", repos = "http://www.omegahat.org/R")

As you might infer, at some point we might create a SOAP-based

 The intent of doing this is to get the infrastructure in place
and allow others to play with the interface and add higher-levels
to make it more R-esque.

  It was developed reasonably hastily so there may be issues
and it could handle more documentation, but it works for me.
