Well, ssh.el seems to work as well as what I was doing before.  If I

M-x ssh  (enter info for my host)
M-x ess-remote (r)
C-c C-v

The help fails to open a new frame, as it would running R locally, and
I get weird pager behavior in the ssh buffer.

Can anyone confirm that this works for them?

It isn't a showstopper for me, but it would be nice to have (usable)
access to help from a remote R session.

Thanks all,

+ seth
