Thanks for this patch.
I am using quite extensively backward-paragraph type of functions to  
navigate rapidly through my code. Now with your new regexprs my cursor  
stops at each if/else/for line which hampers the navigation considerably.

Do you think the issue could be solved in some other way (say by replasing  
fill-paragraph with ess-fill-paragraph)?

Otherwise I am afraid I would prefer not to have this additional regexp in  
my default installation of ess.
