[ESS] ess-comment-indent

Dear List,

I'm using XEmacs 21.4.19 (Constant Variable) on Slackware Linux 11.0.
I work most of the time in Stata and sometimes in R.  When I'm writing
out a .do-file (a Stata script), if I put a comment on its own line,
the next line will automatically be indented 2 columns.  I don't want
that to happen.  I'm sure this is ESS code making this happen, since
it also happens in R mode.

I've looked through ess-mode.el and found a number of functions.  I
would presume the best way to rectify this would be to put a
replacement function in my init.el:

(defun misbehaving-function ()

or whatever you would suggest.  The biggest complication is that I
don't want to eradicate the desirable behavior.  If there's a variable
I can set (ess-comment-indent-...), instead of replacing the function,
please let me know.  That would be the simplest solution.
