ok - let's keep the default as it is, but I think it makes sense to
tell people to edit the ess-r-versions variable if they are going to
call other versions of R.

I'm not sure speed is a serious issue, but perhaps we could
test... (and if it is slow, perhaps "R-1" might be a candidate to be
deleted from ess-r-versions -- anyone using R-1.x.y?)
