Hello, sorry for late answer.

I examined the possibility to remove rpy2 from HR plugin. Still I am
unsure on how to exchange data between R and QGIS. QGIS could write a
temporary file with input data, that R would read. But it would be
unnecessary disk usage, and will be slow in case of hundreds of points.

I would prefer to restore rpy2 functionality, also for benefit of
other users, and I am willing to support its re-packaging.
