Surely that should be left up to the user.  And as Erin pointed out in 
her second message, it is.  The default is no prompt --- which seems to 
be the style desired by you and Yihui --- but setting prompt=TRUE inside 
the << >> gives prompts for those who want them in their documents.

Since the default is "no prompt", the only meaningful interpretation of 
Yihui's post was the way that Duncan interpreted it.
