[ESS] Optimum use of AUCTeX (with knitr)

Thanks.  That works - sort of.  My problems are -

- how to get reftex-mode to auto start when entering an Rnw or .tex file
- how to get the mode to persist

Once reftex-mode is in effect I can do C-c = and it works fine.  But if 
I move the cursor to a line of R code reftex mode is deactivated and C-c 
= no longer works when I return the cursor to a LaTeX line.
