Ah, I see. Interesting approach. I do like that in some circumstances.

Other times, however, it is nice to get some immediate feedback on
errors and/or R output when sending selections of text to Rdaemon. I
guess the disadvantage is that you can't have multiple console windows
open without consequences. (Although I've never found myself doing

Might be nice to simply have two bundle commands: one to send silently
and one to update the console and output the result.

This new behaviour reminds me of the Emacs + ESS command 'evaluate
this line/region' without switching focus. On that note, as an
alternative, would it be possible to have a selection sent to the
console, the output displayed, and the focus shifted back (or always
staying on) the R source code window? I would find that quite useful.
