[R] savehistory in OSX version

The history features on Mac OS's R.app are handled by R.app
and is a (small) superset of R's facilties, e.g. it supports multi-line
history recalls.

A disadvantage of this approach is that it's not possible to use
R's history() and savehistory() nor make usage completely
identical. The actual history files do 'interoperate', although
you will loose the multiline feature.

A good list for Mac OS specific discussions is r-sig-mac at r-project.org.

Hope this helps,
