Well, this is outrageous:  
The ELPA/MELPA version is *NOT AT ALL* ess-version 13.09-2 from
all I know.
Rather it uses a version of the *development* version of ESS,
see below.

and similar.

What formerly indented as

  else if(...)
  else if(...)

now indents very badly.

Please note that the ELPA / MELPA version of ESS are
*development* versions and hence you are beta testing the
release I had planned for last week and postponed, exactly for
this (indentation "broken") reason.
