Hi Steve,

Did you check the last version of polymode (from MELPA)? Although still in 
development, it is already functional for basic operations, and this is the 
way to go for Rmd files. Check the git page for more information on how to 
setup Emacs correctly with polymode:


You'll be mostly interested in 'polymode-weave' and 'polymode-export' in 
your workflow.
