It should probably go into the ./lisp/ subdirectory.

But that won't necessarily solve the problem, see below.

How and when completion works depends on a few things,
not the least the ESS version you are using.
- what is your OS (MacOS, Linux, Windows, ...)
- what kind of Emacs are you using?
- Is this about R or S-plus ?
