[Rd] Working with Sweave: inverse search?

The xdvi and yap DVI viewers allow inverse (aka reverse) search: you
click on a location in the output display, and your editor moves to the
corresponding location in the input file. yap at least also allows
forward search, where you can have your editor tell it to location where
a particular input line is displayed.
I would like something like this to work in Sweave files. That is, I
write an Sweave file and process it through to a .dvi in the previewer,
then I click in a previewer and am taken to the original location in the
There seem to be two obstacles: The latex I'm using (from MikTeX)
doesn't give any way to indicate the original source file when the .tex
comes out of Sweave, and Sweave doesn't keep track of the concordance
between input lines and output lines.
Both of these are fixable, but it looks like a few hours work; has
anyone done this already?
