[Texmacs-dev] keymappings

I want to update the TeXmacs R interface to my latest version. (even with some 
limited syntax highlighting...)

But I have the following problem:

I work a lot with this interface, so I added shortcuts to insert a new session.

"R1." inserts the default R session (no alt, clt, esc or anything!)
"R2." inserts a second new session
"R3." a third

"RR." asks the user for a remote host, and starts a session there - this is 
started as the default session, so R1. will insert sessions to that remote R.

Now the question is this: what should I do with these shortcuts - they make it 
much nicer to work with R, but they are called from outside the R session 
(because you want to insert a session), and possibly before any R session is in 
the document (you want to start a new session).

In particular, RR., which starts a remote session starts before any session is 
inserted, and there currently is no menu to do that.


Should these be global shortcuts?
Should there be a global R menu, before any R session is started?
Should this just be use preferences, so I'll have them in my personal init, but 
no one else?
Should they still be activated only when you select to insert an R session? So, 
you'll have to insert one session, and then you have shortcuts? And with remote 
session I'll have to think what to do?

What do you think?
