[ESS] completion using ess-remote

Hi Rodney,

Sorry for not replying faster. I was trying a few other things but they didn't lead anywhere.

The code in ess-r-d.el matches this output and modifying it to set NS to "utils:::" in ess-R-complete-object-name also modifies the these lines. Unfortunately, this does not seem to solve the issue. My guess is that ESS is having problems reading back from R in this instance. This would explain why it is missing the "TRUE" that would be generated by (ess-current-R-at-least '2.7.0).

Is there anyone using ess-remote on this list? These seem to be basic issues and I find it strange that I would be the only one having them. Or would there be another way to get completion to work?
