[ESS] Polymode is on MELPA

Hi Vitali,

Finally, I got round to give this a try.  I can't get polymode to load,

I have an org mode file and do M-x ploy-org-mode and what I get is a
message in the minibuffer saying 'Not enabling jit-lock: it does not
work in inderect buffer' and emacs is unresponsive, so that it does not
react to C-G and I have to kill it.

I get the same using emacs -Q loading only org-mode, ess and poly-mode.

This is on
- OS X 10.9.4
- GNU Emacs
- poly-mode from git
- Org-mode version 8.2.6 (if important)

Any suggestions?
