I just returned from the CompStat meeting in Barcelona (a great place!),
as I don't see any answer to your question,

Here is what I said a few weeks ago in the  S-mode mailing list :

I'm still waiting for S-mode 4.9

Note that Tony Rossini also has patched S-mode to work with
Xemacs with S and R.

Well, and then  Ross 'himself' has some patched-up version of S-mode 4.8
to be used with 'R'...
