Thanks for the advice Alex,
I've commented out all my .emacs auto-complete references and will
start migrating/learning company-mode. So far, it has gotten rid of
the annoying "help dump", so that's a plus.
I couldn't find definitive documentation for how to configure compnay
for ESS (beyond this: https://stackoverflow.com/a/49352699), but what
I have right now is simply
(setq ess-use-company t)
and it seems to work ok for completion within ESS/iESS buffers.
Any other tips on configuration are appreciated.
