I've been very busy for the first 1.5 days of the week
and started to follow the thread yesterday.
I agree that Sven has implemented a very nice idea,
and I agree we should accept it for ESS if Sven is donating it.
Unfortunately, at the moment there's no *.el (emacs lisp) file,
and yesterday I had to produce my own from the Sven's web page.
There are small things that need to be changed, most of them
just be renaming functions; making global variables into
"customizable" ones etc.
I've already improved on one function of Sven
using one '(let *...)' instead of nested (let . ) plus (setq ..)'s.
But that has to be expected, given Sven said that he's a newbie
in elisp (:= emacs lisp) programming.
Very nice idea(s), indeed, thank you Sven!
Sven, can you take the append *.el file,
merge it with your latest changes, and also provide it from your
That would be useful for ESS-core to look at it and think about
``ESS-ification'' --- unless of course, you oppose that idea.
