[R] R-/Text-editor for Windows?

Notepad ++ handles just about anything and has an accompanying program 
NppToR to make passing scripts easier.

Geany also handles a ton of filetypes, but lacks a direct interface to R 
in the windows version - I wrote an AutoHotKey script that did this for me 
in about 5 minutes. On the other hand, geany is cross platform.

As always, EMACS + ESS and Vim are also options.
