[ESS] ess-r-args-show

Dear ESS genii,

At some stage, I found this bit for my ~/.emacs file which I find very

;; Show function argument completion while editing R code and
;; interacting with an inferior R process
(define-key ess-mode-map [f5] 'ess-r-args-show)
(define-key ess-mode-map [f6] 'ess-r-args-insert)
(define-key inferior-ess-mode-map [f5] 'ess-r-args-show)
(define-key inferior-ess-mode-map [f6] 'ess-r-args-insert)

Being a fan of lazy typing, I find it arduous to press the F5 key
after I've gone to all the bother of typing a function name and then
an opening bracket.  My question is what would I need to add to the
.emacs file so that the args appeared as though I'd pressed F5?  I
seem to remember seeing that happen when a colleague was using Vincent
Goulet's GNU Emacs Windows distribution.
