Close, close, close but no cigar yet: For a given R process, x11() windows
group for a that process. But we often run multiple R processes.  Have you
seen anything for grouping under the "program" (in some sense) but not the
concrete process from it?

( If someone wants to play, Ubuntu binaries for groovy == 20.10 are at
