[ESS] Keybind for "evaluate a multiline command"?

with the help of library(magrittr), my code becomes more and more
structured in multiline commands, e.g.:
filter(name %>% substr(1, 3) %>% equals("Ste")) %>%
group_by(year, sex) %>%
summarize(total = sum(n)) %>%
qplot(year, total, color = sex, data = ., geom = "line") %>%
add(ggtitle('Names starting with "Ste"')) %>%
I am using shift-enter per line, thereby torturing my enter key when
running these long commands. Is there a way for ESS to recognize these 7
lines are one command and run them with only one shift-enter?
I know of ess-eval-region-or-function-or-paragraph-and-step , which
would run that whole thing in one go, but then it would also execute
subsequent commands (the "head(iris)" in above snippet) that are not
separated by a newline.
So ideally, I am looking for a command to bind to shift-enter that would
run the above thing in six hits: one per library, one for the multiline
command, and one for the head(iris).
If that doesn't exist, I'll use
ess-eval-region-or-function-or-paragraph-and-step, which would force me
to use more newlines in my code, but has the advantage of running all
the library commands with one hit.
