Support for markdown syntax highlighting in .R files

rmarkdown

#1

Hey,
are there any plans to support markdown syntax highlighting in .R files for markdown in #' comments? Like:

#' # this is a header
#'
#' and here is a paragraph

Would you be willing to file this as a feature request at https://github.com/rstudio/rstudio/issues?

We do currently highlight a subset of Markdown within Roxygen comments; we could probably support a bit more.

Done, see github issue for further discussion.
