Without doubt.  How about this problem: I can get input from the
minibuffer and store it in a variable.  I haven't yet found out how to
call R from a lisp function (or more correctly do thing like
eval-region/eval-my-search-function) and when I do I want to be able
to pass the entered value to the function.  I plan to try to work on
this over the weekend so if you can give me some pointers in that
direction it would be helpful.  Please remember though that I am very,
very new to lisp.

Okay, will do.  BTW, what's the best way to handle
discussion/collaboration on this?  Off-list, at least until something
more solid appears?  It is probably a little tangential to R-help for
now and I have not subscribed to the ESS list. 

Bye for now.
