The "styler" package that Ahmadou noted has promise (for one, Yihui is mentoring its development, so perhapsd it will replace formatR), as configurability is mentioned. I've come to the view over the years (hat tip to Phil Lord) that Emacs often tries too hard to do too much. Its great that Emacs has great indentation skills, but if most users I collaborate with don't use Emacs (which is a sad fact), we need tools that everyone can use. So I will watch styler (unless anything better comes along) and see how useful it is and if so, how it can interact with ESS.
