My personal opinion is that no smart operators, nor even smart
underscore should be part of ESS. It's a task for specialized packages.
Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, there are no satisfactory
solutions out there as yet.
I have recently picked up the dormant key-combo project. It needs quite
serious facelifting but nevertheless does a good job of speeding up
%foo% operators for me. My hope is to put it up to standards within a
couple of months.
