The good news is that for 95% of shots, the S95 is just as good, and for many shots, it's more painless.

This is actually good to hear (maybe you're telling me what I want to hear). I have an Olympus OMD EM-5 with a full spectrum of lenses and a Canon S95. I'm traveling to Ireland this summer and was strongly considering buying the RX100 as my new "backup" P&S to back up the Oly, especially for inconspicuous indoor low light shooting like in a pub. If the difference is sufficiently small that it actually takes a while to realize, there's no reason for me to spend almost $700 for the RX100 (includes the grip I would want to get if I purchased one).
