Actually, it's even worse than I suspected.  Not only does
submitting a Sweave file not work from ESS.  Editing a Sweave
file in XEmacs is not possible if you use viper-mode.  As you
'j' down a file, XEmacs goes into an infinite loop when you
reach a code chunk.  You'll see a j inserted right before,
so Sweave does not honor minor modes, rather it wreaks havoc
with those that it comes across.

And, after thinking about it a little, I don't think the code marks
make any sense.  Why << and @?  This means that you can't work with
these files with off-the-shelf tools like csplit.  Why not << and <<@?
Then you could very simply do:  csplit -f file. file /<</
Right now, this seems to be more of a hassle than it is actually worth.
