+1 for merging! The rgrass7 content might well be merged with some edits
and beautifications in the "How to use" section of the R_statistics page,

yes, only GRASS & R

Since it is possible to use R within GRASS and GRASS within R, what about
'GRASS_and_R' the same way we also have GRASS_and_Python [0]?

'GRASS<-->R' even if allowed seems, imho, too complex for a wikipage name.
