That's sweet, particularly the new R bundle. I hope this will be merged soon in the main bundles repository. I'm not sure about Rdeamon since I have a pretty good workflow with a terminal (plus, I always have one open for git related stuff anyway) and I never liked the Rconsole thing.

For those wanting a powerful/easy to customize editor (for R or else) but who feel a bit scared by Emacs, TextMate is really a worthy alternative.
