Hello!  Thanks for the first report I've seen of ESS/Emacs on Mac OS.

I didn't know that Emacs on OS 9 handled subprocesses?   This needs to
be checked/verified.

Can you do anything like:
        M-x shell ?

Is there an Rterm.exe on the Mac?

If not, we'd have to figure out if R on Mac OS (>=9.x) uses anything
like COM/OLE to communicate (I'm pretty sure it did/does, but also
sure that it wasn't COM/OLE/DDE); this would be in analogy to the
Emacs Splus 2k direct connection.
