I would suggest talk to folks using emacs, as emacs is written in lisp
(well - elsisp)and particularly, especially the guys from org-mode
(http://orgmode.org/), because they deal with all kinds of languages
(including R) http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/. Very
helpfull mailing list (http://orgmode.org/index.html#sec-5-2).
I am quite sure, that somebody there should be able to help.

It is well-behaved comma-separated file. -- David.
