Hi, I've been trying to work with the RPython interface and noticed a
strange problem.  When
stdin is not a terminal the R part of the RPython interface complains.


	$ python RPython.py
	Initialized R-Python interface package.

works fine, but

	$ python < RPython.py

This particular strangeness isn't a problem in this context, but it does
become a problem when I try to use the python-mode of xemacs.  If I do
<Control-c><Control-c> to submit my python code I get the same error:

	Fatal error: you must specify `--save', `--no-save' or

Is there a way to fix this?


(BTW: I've crossposted this to omega-remote and R-devel.  What list
_should_ I be sending this type of message to?  I also considered R-help
and omega-bugs...)
