Thanks for taking this back up.

I too find that "help was the deal-breaker for me" when trying to work
with ESS under tramp or remote-ESS.  I could not get R's help to
display using, for instance, ess-display-help-on-object (c-c c-v).
When I try, it hangs with the cursor in the mini-buffer.  c-g brings
me to the ESS buffer with the help being paged with, `less` or some

Any thoughts?
