thanks Matt, Phil.

Yes, org-babel does work with R, but what I meant to ask was whether
anyone had put together such a large org+R document together.

To get syntax highlighting in code blocks, don't you first have to hit
C-c ' (org-edit-special) to open a temp buffer.  I don't think they've
yet solved the multi-mode problem in org mode.

Vitalie, on the other hand, has done a great job with polymode.el for
.Rnw files (and others).
