[ESS] Addition of R-here function?

What would you think about adding something like this to ESS?

   (defun R-here ()
     "Run iESS R in current working directory."
     (let ((ess-ask-for-ess-directory nil))

I have this in my .emacs, which allows me to run "emacs -f R-here" from 
a shell (or add a "R.emacs" alias that does the same) and immediately 
get to R running in emacs in the current directory. Essentially it makes 
it easy to transition to ESS--you get R up and running immediately and 
with no fuss, just as if you had typed "R", but it's all done within 
emacs and ESS.

Suggestions and criticism welcome.
