Dear Tony,

I often use Leo ( which is like a literate editor on steroids (folding + outlining, noweb and cweb support, and a _lot_ more), and I use it for all complex/long Rnw documents, including interacting with R ...

...but I "cheat", because the editing itself (of the "nodes" or folds), including submitting code to R from the R chunks, I do in emacs (with ESS).

Leo is available for Linux, Win, Mac and is written in Python.
