[R] R commandline editor question

I am using R 2.1 on Apple OS X.

When I get the ">" prompt, I find it works well with emacs commandline editing. Keys like M-f C-k etc. work fine.

The one thing that I really yearn for, which is missing, is bracket matching When I am doing something which ends in )))) it is really useful to have emacs or vi-style bracket matching, so as to be able to visually keep track of whether I have the correct matching brackets, whether ( or { or [.

I'm sure this is possible. I will be most grateful if someone will show the way :-) Thanks,
