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.
