[R] is it safe to replace every "<-" by "=" in R code?

I think it is worth pointing out that, if you use ESS with (X)emacs,
" <- " (with spaces) is produced when you type "_".  It requires only two
keystrokes (shift and -), and the spaces are done for you. The = sign
requires three because you need to type the spaces on each side.
