Thanks for including my fix for the bug in ess-retr-lastvalue-command, which I
reported on 11/15/01, 2/26/02, and 8/5/03.  The new code is lines 71-72 of
essd-r.el (and the old version is commented out in lines 73-74).  I notice
there is no mention of this bug fix in the README.

As has been noted before, this will break if R-Core ever decides to disallow
writing to package:base.
