Summary: rcmdr through rkward

Initial Comment:
Hi, good evening rkward community,

To extend the functionality of rkward through the build in functionality of rcmdr's plugins, would it make sense to think of adding a menu, say, "Rcmdr" which gives access to the dropdown menus available in Rcmdr so that the interfaces pop-up or would it be simpler to just reimplement the functionality in rkward?  I thinking mostly of the nice interfaces for accessing qcc, factominer, and orloca.

Thank you,

This is not quite what you're asking for, but may be of interest:

In RKWard 0.5.1, you can now (again, after a long time) invoke the Rcmdr
interface from within RKWard in the usual way (by typing "library(Rcmdr)"
in the console). Most features work as expected, this way.

I'll provide a short initial feedback:

- In the long run, all Rcmdr functionality should be reimplemented in
- In the short term, a solution along your lines sounds like a good idea.
However, I am not currently sure, whether and how this could be done. I
will need to investigate this, but some other issues are higher up in
priority ATM.
