[ESS] Suggestion: ess-eval-chunk-and-step

Here is another function, which displays the R buffer and scrolls it
appropriately.  Oddly, for some reason, this generates an error in the
current SVN version (replacing 'noweb-next-code-chunk with
'ess-noweb-code-chunk), but is happy under 12.4	

(defun ess-eval-chunk-show-and-step ()
  "Tangle the current chunk and send it to the inferior ESS process and
step to the next chunk"
  ;; ess-eval-chunk forgets the current buffer, so store and restore it
  (let ( 
	(cbuf (current-buffer) )
    (command-execute 'ess-eval-chunk-and-go)
    (switch-to-buffer-other-window cbuf)

  (command-execute 'noweb-next-code-chunk)
