This is crude, but seems to work:  Define a new key "C-c r" which runs
eval-region, ess-switch-to-end-of-ESS, and other-window.  To wit, in .emacs:

  (fset 'my-eval-region "\C-c\C-r\C-c\C-z\C-xo")
  (global-set-key "\C-cr" 'my-eval-region)

I'm sure the gurus will come up with something much more elegant!
