I have copied Gregor's files at

        http://www.ci.tuwien.ac.at/~leisch/Sweave/LyX

for those who didn't get the attachments. LyX looks actually much better and stable then when I last had a look a couple of years ago.

To add to the discussion: One might even get better integration between Sweave and LyX because LyX allows specification of file converters:

	Edit->Preferences->Converters
	Edit->Preferences->File Formats

After registering .Stex as a file format for Sweave I can import .Stex files using conversion command

        reLyX -f $$i && mv $$i.lyx $$o

and the move is necessary only because reLyX produces foo.Stex.lyx rather then foo.lyx.

Using an Sweave shell script like Gregor's in combination with "lyx -e latex" might do the trick to have direct conversion to PDF from the LyX GUI.

Best,
Fritz
