I don't really understand how you plan to develop unattached package?
Cannot you just do it in usual way, directly in .GlobalEnv?
The intend of ess-developer is to facilitate fixes, and improvements
which could be done directly in the namespace and pkg environment. You
can think of it as a second development stage after the initial build.
