Dear Rich and Tony,

Generally, I agree that it's desirable to make things as platform and 
specific-emacs independent as possible, but my goal was to do something a 
bit more limited: provide a simple configuration for ESS R users under Windows.

I expect that almost everything will work, with some tweaking, with Xemacs 
under Unix, but that GNU Emacs will be a problem because of the toolbar 
definition. I hasten to add that I'm an ESS neophyte, and would be 
delighted to see someone more experienced improve on what I've done.
