Yes, I already tried that approach. It works perfectly, even for  
errors/messages BUT one looses the possibility to interact with R,  
e.g. readline("Give me the value for x:"). I didn't find a way to  
distinguish whether R is waiting for the user's input. And  
unfortunately it's not allowed to overwrite the function 'readline'.
