Simon et al.,

I've really been enjoying the R.app editor and its constant 
improvements, thanks for the great work!    In fact I have mostly 
switched from ESS to the built-in editor.

Since this seems to have turned into a "suggestions for improvement" 
thread, I thought I would add my two cents worth.  Three features from 
ESS that I really miss are 1) the ability to highlight a region of code 
and comment/uncomment all of it with one command; 2) true automatic 
indentation; 3) pretty formatting (indenting/tabbing) of comments.

With regards to other issues that have been brought up, I am strongly in 
favor of the documents remaining text-only, and I also would prefer if 
formatting attributes were not preserved when pasting in formatted text 
from another source.

Please do not take these as complaints, but rather one users suggestions 
for improvements...
