[TxMt] R daemon running 'inside' of TM + Version III

This is wonderful, your efforts are greatly appreciated.   Perhaps it
is time to replace the R console code in the main R package with these
commands?  The code completion would be useful when editing normal R
scripts as well, is that easily achieved?   A few very minor comments.

1.  The insert argument and parameter function inserts in the
following fashion "n=1".  However, the R coding standard[1], suggests
"n = 1" (with spaces).  I suspect that many will want it the way it
is, and it's not hard to change the command, but perhaps the default
should be changed.

2.  Why does the bundle include a style for the prompts?  Why not
scope this and have it handled by the chosen theme?  For some themes
the default isn't very attractive to my eyes.

3.  The bundle I have installed has two "Start X11" and two "Open
Rsession Project" commands, what is the difference between these?

Thanks again, this is awesome stuff!
