[R] edit windows in RAqua

I'm just beginning to explore Raqua on a new G5 machine.  Generally,
it feels very natural, but I'm puzzled by the behavior of editing
windows.  When you use fix() or vi() or edit() you get a new
window;  this is fine, but is there a way to:

	o  specify what editor is operating in this window

	o  control the size of the window

	o  allow control to revert back to the R console with
		the editing window open?

I guess what I'm really asking is whether there is a built in way
to spawn an xterm editing window running vi for such tasks that
would leave the console active or some equivalent functionality.
