Indeed. Eldoc is on by default and that functionality is built-in now.


(setq-default inferior-R-args "--no-restore-history --no-save ")

--no-restore-history has no effect because ESS/comint manages its own
completion ring. I think having it there is a bit confusing for users.

;; Set code indentation following the standard in R sources.
(setq ess-default-style 'C++)

I am not sure about this, but I think the recommended style is RRR,
which closer resembles R's conventions. At least we are using it for ESS
R code. Martin probably can say more on this one.
