Right, we'd need to save the prior state somewhere.  How does one get
the function bound to a key?  find-function-on-key is not it.

Great.  Can you modify insert-S-assign so it handles extra spaces

(insert-S-assign #'(lambda() (interactive) (delete-horizontal-space)
                     (insert ess-S-assign)))

I think it should revert to whatever it was before, not necessarily
smart underscore.
