In case people did not try the new ESS, I find a wonderful enhancement
in the behavior of M-q in Roxygen markup. There is now smart
indentation so that a block of text is not smashed into one giant
paragraph.  That's a great improvement, thanks very much to the

Now an M-q in the markup area gives this excellent output, for example

##' @param projSeeds Required. Either an object of class portableSeeds
##'     (created by \code{seedCreator}) or a text string giving the
##'     name of an R saved file of the appropriate format (created by
##'     the seedCreator function).
##' @param run Integer indicating which element from the portable seed
##'     collection is to be selected
##' @param verbose Optional. Print out the state of the current
##'     generator. Default = FALSE.
##' @return nothing is returned.
