[R-SIG-Mac] Pasting Code in Editor has Wrong Colors

Thanks for the shortcut keys. I'll definitely use them.

As for your question about where it's coming from, mostly Chrome via
ggplot2/manipulatr mailing lists, and stackoverflow. As you say it will
retain the fonts and sizes and everything. I had tried CMD + Shift + V as
it is in gmail and it didn't work.

Coming from a naive standpoint, I'm unsure why pasting as plain text isn't
the default here. Is it inherited from OSX, and you have no choice?

I've thought about it a few times and I can't imagine why having decorated
text is useful in R-GUI at all but particularly the editor window. It
overrides colors, fonts, font sizes, until you save and reopen. Then
everything is like if you had pasted as plain text.
