Hi Paul,

the large majority of your configuration is just that - changing the  
defaults. (require 'ess-site) actually loads ESS, but it does so  
unconditionally and upon startup, which consumes too much time.

We have nicely included it via autoload for some time now, and now  
that a crucial bug will be fixed in the next ESS version, we won't  
have any problems with it any more.
