I'm using method "gnudoit" from both xterm and ESS which gets you into
an emacs mail buffer. Of course you need a working gnudoit for
this. Problem with ESS was (I think) that you can't open an editor
inside emacs and know when it terminates, hence method "ess" does
nothing but dump the text to stdout.
