if that is the code i gave you one year ago, there are colleagues
working (better mousing) with it. i have to admit two things: 1. i
wasnt very fluent writing elisp these days and 2. major part was
stolen from vm-toolbar.

indeed, it is not hard to get a toolbar that does things like

    stephen> Save R buffer 
    stephen> Start an R process 
    stephen> Send current line to *R*
    stephen> process Send current region to *R* process
    mark region or functions 
    send current function 
    switch ess processes 
    switch to the current process buffer or log and lst buffer with SAS 
    edit object
    get help (on R objects)
    show next error e.g. bind a button to
                    (defun (interactive) (ess-eval-linewise "traceback()"))
    open/close graphic/postscript devices

note that you can (and should) install the toolbar buffer local ... 

let me know if i can help ...
