Well, I have two things that I would really like to see improved:
1. I would like help to work through a remote R session. Right now,
if I do C-c C-v when working with a remote R, I get garbled and
paged help output in the R session buffer. Instead, I would like
the behavior for when using a local R: a new frame comes up with
the help nicely formatted and easy to navigate.
2. I would like to be able to send a C-c to the R process to kill a
computation without terminating R and my ssh connection. This
issue has been recently discussed on the list.
