Makefiles are cool, but only if you are a guru.  Most people probably
want an easier solution.  I've tried to create a one-click method of
processing Rnw to pdf, by stringing together a couple of the ess
functions into a "compile Rnw to PDF" function, but I ran into
problems.  If I recall, it seems like ess launched Mixtex before R
finished generation the tex file.
