I have copied Gregor's files at


for those who didn't get the attachments. LyX looks actually much
better and stable then when I last had a look a couple of years ago.

To add to the discussion: One might even get better integration
between Sweave and LyX because LyX allows specification of file

	Edit->Preferences->File Formats

After registering .Stex as a file format for Sweave I can import .Stex
files using conversion command

	reLyX -f $$i && mv $$i.lyx $$o

and the move is necessary only because reLyX produces foo.Stex.lyx
rather then foo.lyx.

Using an Sweave shell script like Gregor's in combination with
"lyx -e latex" might do the trick to have direct conversion to PDF
from the LyX GUI.
