hi, good questions... this isn't straightforward from what I see.

(add-hook 'ess-mode-hook '(lambda () (setq comment-column 60)))

put the above in .emacs and this should work.  But maybe the better
solution might be to allow S-editing-alist to be customizable ...

(setq ess-indent-level 4)

All this needs better documentation!
