R and semantic programming

I'm reading a pretty fascinating HNN thread on R today. I haven't worked a lot with the R/Matlab/Octave types of languages (my daughter has, and I've helped her debug things, but I don't really know what I'm doing with them). It seems that a semantic approach, kind of layering type inference onto an editor or something, might be really interesting here.

Worth considering, anyway.
