This is part of the grand master plan.  As soon as I figure out where
I'll be next fall, I'll be working more it.  We really need to
refactor so: 
         Splus6 -> Splus6 Unix
                -> Splus6 Windows
rather than
         Splus6 Windows
         Splus6 Unix
to clear up the code.

The toolbar code is nearly finished for SAS, S(-Plus) and R.  :-).
Stephen, didn't you want this for some

(I know this is ess-help, not ess-core, but others should know there
some work is still (very slowly) being done).
