In trying to find it, I'm annoyed by something else. Does anyone else
hate the naming scheme of essl-s.el, essd-r.el, etc.? Wouldn't it be
better if it was ess-s-l.el and ess-r-d.el, etc.? Even better, rename
essl-s.el to ess-r-l.el. That way, ess-r-l.el and ess-r-d.el would be
right next to each other in a dired buffer and easier on the eyes.
