no!  Thomas, this was ESS-help and not R-help and he was really meaning
     the ESS manual online at   (maintained by me)

The real reason I didn't answer David Kane's request
(I was about to say ``yeah, I can do that quickly if you want''):
As I looked again at the ESS (not R!) manual, I realized how badly
out-of-date it is, and I think it should rather be whipped into shape
before releasing  the nice dvi/ps/pdf version of it (that people really
would be tempted to print out and actually read...).
