I have tried it a few times, but not had satisfactory results. 

I use mostly R src blocks, so I want to have ESS like functionality. And I really like to be able to execute src blocks with `org-babel-execute-src-block'. 

Unfortunately, it seems like polymode gets into conflicts with org mode from time to time. My memory is a bit dim on exactly the issues, but I think there were freezes. Maybe turning off all the stops and whistles in org mode (like fontification) would solve this, but I never gave it a go. 

Having said that, I will say it is easy enough to install and try out. And perhaps your mileage will vary.

Best,
Chuck
