In particular, be careful not to overclaim.  Motivated by preparing to
announce to the ESS mailing list.

swankr is in the level of integration of various facilities with
emacs: ESS uses the browser() debugger, whereas swankr provides its
own debugger, sldb; swankr provides a custom REPL with hooks for
common commands; and so on. For Lisp programmers, perhaps the most
useful analogy is to say that swankr is to ESS what SLIME is to
ILISP. At present, however, ESS mode remains active in R source
common commands; and so on. On the other hand, ESS is mature,
feature-rich software, while swankr is only a little more advanced
than a proof-of-concept. For Lisp programmers, perhaps the most
useful analogy is to say that swankr intends to be to ESS what
SLIME is to ILISP. At present, ESS mode remains active in R source
buffers, providing font-locking functionality among other things.
