[Rd] Developing R packages in an IDE

R development folks,

I want to get a sense if there is general interest/use of integrated 
development environments (MS Visual Studio, Eclipse, KDevelop, etc.) among R 
package (C/C++/Fortran) developers. I've used Visual Studio (as well as 
ESS/vi setups) in the past and am toying with KDevelop these days. Are there 
others out there who have tried using KDevelop for R package development? Any 
success or pitfalls?

If there's no one else out there using KDevelop I might forge ahead and write 
up a tutorial on R package development with KDevelop. I can't tell just yet 
whether it's a good route but so far it seems promising.
