Differences from Unix versions of R
- Command-line editing is always available, but is much simpler than
under readline-based input on Unix.
so this is clearly documented.

In R version 1.2 you will be able to list the history in a pager and
re-submit commands from there. Now you can use savehistory() or the
menu item for this to save the history to a file and save it from there.
