There is a spreadsheet mode for emacs which uses S-PLUS for the
underlying calculations (which makes it quite intriguing).  Since Rich
Heiberger wrote the initial version, it's on the "list of things to
do", to merge with ESS (and/or make it compatible with R).

Frank Ritter mentioned dismal, which I used eons ago, and worked
nicely.  I would suggest that for a first pass.
