I also interested in this application and took a look and found the 
following in
the folding.el

;;  Example: changing default fold marks
;;      In case you're not happy with the default folding marks, you
;;      can change them easily. Here is an example
;;          (setq folding-load-hook 'my-folding-load-hook)
;;          (defun my-folding-load-hook ()
;;            "Folding vars setup."
;;            (let* ((ptr (assq 'text-mode folding-mode-marks-alist)))
;;              (setcdr ptr (list "# {{{" "# }}}"))))

So this should be hacked to work with Sweave chunks. However I am a bit 
sceptic about "enough markup". There surely is enough for the start i.e.
<<someRegExp>>=, but the end is only @. And this character also appears 
in R code.

Can any lisp master handle this?
