Moving to the ESS-help list -- this is about SWeave features that
might be nice, in relation to eval-region on an Sweave document where
the region spans multiple chunks of code, across documentation chunks.

Because the rest of the code isn't written; basically, we could do
something within the ess-eval-region command like (psuedocode follows,
don't try at home!):

(if  (and  (within-noweb-mode) 
   (eval-region (using-R) 
                (narrow-to-code-region-only selected-region)))

which shouldn't be too hard, but will take a bit of time.
