[ESS] Function template

I've had this issue when in a directory that has an src
directory that came across from a machine where I had
a different username (johnm1, was john).  The old files in
the src subdirectory then have names like johnm.locatefun.R
where it should now be johnm1.locatefun.R.  There may be
some easy way to fix all the file names from within an ess
session -- if so I am eyes open!
