Probably easy: running R on a remote machine?

The answer is supposed to be yes and it used to be yes.  At the moment
the function is broken.  I backed up to an older version ESS-5.1.8, and it
works there.
   M-x S+elsewhere
gives you a shell buffer that thinks its running S.  It also times out.
Move the cursor to the end of the buffer.  telnet or rlogin to your other
computer.  start R. All the C-c C-n and related commands work.

The function (and an improved version M-x ESS-elsewhere) is broken
in the current version of ESS as a side effect of some other changes.
We will bring it back.
