I think this is close to what you want

13.3 Other Kill Commands


      Kill the following balanced expression (`kill-sexp').  *Note

Put point before the '{' or '(' and this will kill everthing to (and 
including) the matching '}' or ')'

If things are unbalanced, you may run into problems in _some_ modes 
killing things that you might not want to have killed. It looks like 
inferior-ess-mode handles unbalanced setups gracefully.
