That save-excursion is only a workaround for ess-eval-chunk, which as
you also noted was changing buffers. In trunk ess-eval-chunk was fixed,
so no need for save-excursion.

They are equivalent. I just translated your command-execute into funcall
without too much thinking :) 

I am also thinking that C-c C-l (or C-c C-b) should actually execute all
chunks in the buffer. And not by tangling, but by literally iterating
over chunks (it makes difference for error references and debugging).
