I have something only partially related to add: I'd like to select text 
in the console and delete it. In other words, after spending time 
making a program just right, my console window is full of my failed 
attempts. I'd like to remove the unwanted material (actually I'd like 
better to just "clear" the console, maybe leaving the R version number 
that is put there when opening R) and rerun my complete, debugged 
program to have a clean output for archiving. As of now the novice that 
I am had to quit R and reopen it to run my debugged program.

In short I'm not reporting a bug but asking for a feature, just a menu 
command to "clear the console".
