Also look at the HadoopStreaming package: http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/HadoopStreaming/

To me the mapreduce part of hadoop is the trivial part. It's the job and task trackers of Hadoop that make me want the whole thing integrated with R and not just this "port".

Indeed -- the "and it's trivial" headline was decidedly tongue-in-cheek. If you're interested in using R as the reduce operator in Hadoop, check out the Rhipe project.

Take a look at this: in Ruby you can implement all of Unix in just 14 lines (and it's trivial).
