Aaah, a good idea - I forgot that the stuff is not in the R CVS ;)
Stefano, can you just put a tar ball (with some disclaimer :P) on the
page, please? The "glue" with the R console stuff is likely to change,
but I'd like some comments on the Obj-C R interface (it can be also
used w/o the GUI).
The Obj-C code (the GUI is all Obj-C) is much more readable than the C
code, so it may be understandable even w/o too many comments :P

I didn't get this either - are there some posts about this? I hoped the
reverse would be the case - make the "module" approach even more
modular than it is now (but then I don't even know what the plans are
