The package rtools provides utilities that are of general usage for developing software that use the RPy2 package. This is not a replacement of RPy2 but rather an addon to simplify the life of developers who are using R packages from Python.

# check version of the R package 'base'
import rtools
rbase = rtools.RPackage('base')

See http://packages.python.org/rtools/ for more examples.
