[ESS] ess-cust.el

I always change ess-cust.el so that inferior-R-args contains "--no-save --no-restore-data --silent" rather than the default "".

Can I make this redefinition in my .emacs file, rather than having to alter the source code every time I download it? I tried just sticking the entry below in there, but it didn't seem to take effect. I had a quick look in the elisp manual, but wasn't very enlightened. Would someone mind telling me the 'proper' way of doing this?

Thanks again,
