    IZ> The manual says both 23.x and 24.x are supported...

Yes, Ista, is right here:  The full paragraph in the manual says

  | ESS supports current, and recent, stable versions of GNU Emacs
  | (currently, specifically, the 23.x and 24.x series;
  | alpha/beta/pre-release versions are NOT SUPPORTED). Non-Windows
  | users beware: GNU Emacs 24.3 is preferable to 24.1 or 24.2:
  | these broken builds suffer from bug 12463
  | http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=12463 which will
  | cause emacs and ESS to get progressively slower over time.

And I think it would be great if ESS could remain (mostly)
working with emacs 23.x for a while.
Notably because it is *the* emacs installed/available in some "long time
support" versions of Linux.

Or we really need to change the manual...
