Hi Tony,

Being in a somewhat similar situation, I am also working in R at the
moment. I am only barely familiar with RStudio projects, and I am not
sure which features you require (maybe you could elaborate?), but for my
needs, git + Emacs + org-mode + ESS works fine. In org-babel, you can
use sessions on a section-specific basis.
