Yes, r.patch is the function I need, as several people have pointed
out off-list. I read the man page for r.patch before but didn't
understand it. I didn't realize that the tiles I imported were
automatically filled out with -9999 values such that they actually
covered the whole region, and not just that portion of the region that
they have data for. Now that I understand this, r.patch is obviously
what I need, and what I was in fact duplicating with my complicated
GRASS-Emacs-R-Emacs-GRASS translation.
