As nobody mentioned it so far: Eclipse is doing, as far as I remember, 
exactly what you are looking for: offering functionality for R and for 
LaTeX. But I didn't like it because it uses Java (I prefer to avoid Java 
- to much overhang for my taste) and the R-console was relatively 
unstable (but that was some time ago and I amusing emacs + ESS now...)
