May be somebody with experience on coupling
Grass and Postgress could collaborate
on this and we could end up
with a Grass-Postgress-R coupling.

Subject: postgresql package for R

A preliminary release of my postgres package for R is at

It allows one to read and write data frames to and from a postgres
database, execute queries and has an experimental "proxy" interface that
allows you to access postgres tables using the standard, local data
frame model.  All accesses to the data frame generate the appropriate
queries and returns the data from the database.  (The proxy interface is
broken at the moment.)  I'm mostly looking for a few testers (hopefully
with postgresql experience) to try it out.
