To be clear, this is not a shortcoming of AppleScript, it's a  
shortcoming of the R app. If what you really want is to communicate  
with the data model of the app, you shouldn't have to address the UI  
elements. The application is supposed to export a proper AppleScript  
object model. If the application developers have implemented  
AppleScript support and you're still having to address the UI elements  
to get results, something is missing from the app's implementation.
