yes, thank you Vitalie!

In the thread mentioned, ESS-core has acknowledged that it is 
reasonable *wish* that was uttered there,
and that we would probably accept patches fulfilling that wish,
but no more.

In particular, it has not been called a "bug", and so the issue
is not about "fixing" but about 
"fulfilling wishes" (which *is* a good thing!).

Honestly, I would not expect the issue to be addressed soon,
mostly because I think all of ESS-core have been strong
advocates of the paradigm "the source is real", hence we all do 
and do teach users to work with *.R files rather than extensive
interactions with the history in the  *R* buffer.

Best regards,
