RweaveExtra: Sweave Drivers with Extra Tricks Up their Sleeve

Weave and tangle drivers for Sweave extending the standard drivers. RweaveExtraLatex and RtangleExtra provide options to completely ignore code chunks on weaving, tangling, or both. Chunks ignored on weaving are not parsed, yet are written out verbatim on tangling. Chunks ignored on tangling may be evaluated as usual on weaving, but are completely left out of the tangled scripts. The driver RtangleExtra also provides an option to specify the extension of the file name (or remove it entirely) when splitting is selected on tangling.
