This sounds like a great opportunity for R-users to contribute to the
community (and I certainly would love to participate).

One question for R-Core gurus: R-GUIs have the ability to open a
script window and use a shortcut to execute code in the R-Console. Can
each "Example" on the help pages be configured to do the same? Or at
least assist in block-copying to the Console?

We'd get a lot more people working through examples that way, and
contributors might come up with their own examples to illustrate a
particular function. A Dokuwiki site might be a place where people
could post and vote on new examples to be included in pre-existing
