In response to comments below, a re-phrasing of the question.

I've used the integration of R with QGIS, and found it a very uesful tool. Having taken a look at the R toolbox extension for 9 and the extension for 10 it appears they both offer only point clustering to demonstrate the proof of concept. The question becomes are there any analysis methods available in R that you would like to see implemented through a python script (for example, implementing specific parts of the spatstat package).

The Geospatial Modelling Environment (the successor of Hawth's Tools for ArcGIS) links python scripting, R and ArcGIS in a useful way. I haven't investigated the links with R in detail, but it looks like it may be useful for what you're trying to do.

If you're trying to do something yourself then StatCONN may be useful.
