Thanks that helps alot. But, I wasn't looking in any files. I was just looking
at the variable settings with customize. And, even though I'm on Unix, I see
alot of Windows settings. I think we need to have a more user-friendly model,
i.e. ESS[SAS] has the same variables under Unix, Mac and Windows with different
defaults, if necessary. We can't expect that someone is going to go to the
source code each time, either. And, if they do need to, some way of minimizing
the number of variants is necessary. Perhaps I'm out of my mind, but looking
over our notes from JSM, it would be nice if there were as few files as
1: ess-s.el or ess-sp.el (basics)
2: and ess-sp6.el (S+6-specific for both Unix and Windows)
