Answer from another Lisp newbie, but heavy user or Emacs + ESS + polymode 
on Rmd files: What exactly do you mean by "fluid and seamless"? I'm not 
sure exactly, but on my computer, it is really "fluid and seamless" (at 
least, that's how I would define it!).

Is there a particular issue, something that annoys you? Maybe in comparison 
to other editors (e.g. RStudio)?
