Work in an inferior R session

M-x write-buffer     to TonyIsSilly.Rt

So now your buffer is associated with a file, TonyIsSilly.Rt

M-x R-transcript-mode

M-x ess-transcript-clean-buffer

and you should be left with a script file, not a transcript file.

Enjoy.   I'll be talking about such things at useR if enough people
show up for the tutorial...
