But I think ESS is being loaded before .emacs is source on both Windows and 
Debian GNU/Linux.  So that leaves no good way to intervene beforehand.

I don't recall if my Windows installation was based on Vincent's package; I 
think it was.


P.S.  I don't personally know what ElDoc is or want to disable it, just 
commenting on the general issue of pre-load configuration.
