yes, nicely, indeed.
I've applied it and quickly tested if it doesn't break the
default functionality of *.S files ==> all fine.

Can you look again?
I just checked:  The   ess-5.2.0beta3/doc/*.texi  files are all there.

So, that would be nice .. thank you ...  :-)
and I'm waiting for your patch to 

      ess-5.2.0beta3/doc/ess.texi   (and maybe
      ess-5.2.0beta3/doc/newfeat.texi )

Thanks again, Ed!
