That is nice idea indeed, but I wonder if it would be more appropriate
to put it on the Wiki? There are many other tools out there that might
be useful with R-ESS and they are changing all the time. I think it is
much more efficient to outsource this part of the documentation to the
I think a whole section like "Code navigation and inspection" is
warranted. Here I would include references to "helm" and imenu-anywhere
and also inbuilt ess-build-tags-for-directory (C-c C-e t) and find-tag
I have just done that reorganized our wiki page
and added a link to yet non-existing ESSspeedbar page. Would you mind
adding your text to this page?
