Yes, that does indent by four spaces. Thanks.
Also, FYI, I ran the Emacs "describe-variable" function as indicated in the
appended text. It appears that Emacs "sees" the value of 4 that I set, but
it's using a local value of 2. I was unable to find a way to override that
ess-indent-level is a variable defined in `ess-cust.el'.
Its value is 2
Local in buffer scratch.r; global value is 4
*Indentation of S statements with respect to containing block.
You can customize this variable.
