Ahh, now I get it. Still it needs some polishing, because after configuring LyX that way regular noweb will no longer work, but it shouldn't take too much of an effort to duplicate the noweb configs in LyX to recognise Sweave.

That certainly looks like the way to go, might give Sweave another strong push because people do no longer have to learn all of LaTeX ...

If we make a clean solution then I think it shouldn't be too hard to convince the LyX guys to include it in their distribution -> that would make an out-of-the-box solution.

But it certainly looks very promising.
