[ESS] Finding all versions of R on Windows when R not in default directory

Here is a workaround for those who are not faint-of-heart in working with
.el files.
If it works for you and others, we can put it in a future release of ESS.

In your example, select the second line and comment out the first.
I tested it on Windows 7 with ESS 12.04-4 using the first line and the
third line.

On proper installation, the first three lines will become potential values
for a new
customized variable, and the first line will be the default value.
