For R, look at ESS-elsewhere, which is an ugly hacked function which
needs cleaning.  It works, though.

For SAS, I think some of it works "out of the box" for the batch
approach to SAS (submission of files for evaluation, not
line-at-a-time), but for the "line-at-a-time/command-line/interactive"
approach, you'd need to redefine the SAS shell script.  I recommend
the former, though, as a more stable approach.
