Fair enough. I personally would prefer having enter force a newline  
and return be execute. But I guess that's a change I can make locally.

Frankly I have not looked at TMTOOLS, at all, so I probably can't  
help much there. I was thinking of perhaps matching this in the  
grammar level. I can sort of do it with a syntax like:

{	scopeName = 'source.r-console';
	fileTypes = ( );
	patterns = (
		{	name = 'source.r.embedded.r-console';
			begin = '^> ';
			end = '\n|\z';
			beginCaptures = { 0 = { name = 'punctuation.section.embedded.r- 
console'; }; };
			patterns = (
				{	name = 'variable.testing';
					match = '.*[^\n]\z';
				{	include = 'source.r'; },

But then it is hard to have the last line also be syntax colored  
according to the R syntax. But my grammar-foo is quite rusty, to say  
the least.
