This makes a lot of sense. Once I update the package I will add it. Could
the authors of the 'ESSR' package also add a similar note to their
DESCRIPTION file once the R part of ESS is released?
This package 'ESSR' is named to match the Emacs Speaks Statistics (ESS)
It is unrelated to the 'ess' package, designed to download data from the
Social Survey available at http://www.europeansocialsurvey.org
Thanks for raising these thoughts.
