[ESS] knitr

I've used Sweave for many years, but have switched to knitr because I
find knitr makes several things _much_ easier.  I added this to my

(defun ess-knitr-weave ()
   "Run knitr on the current .Rnw file."
   (ess-swv-run-in-R "knit"))
(define-key noweb-minor-mode-map "\M-nk" 'ess-knitr-weave)
(define-key noweb-minor-mode-map "\M-np" 'ess-swv-PDF)

With that change, I have a fairly simple two-step process to knit and
latex a file.

Slightly related to the discussion here, I wish I could change the
hard-to-type "#+" delimiter for org-mode.  Or, at least, make an
electric-# key similar to the electric-<.
