There is some discussion in the r-core group about this warning and
the behavior of \link[foo]{bar}.  The discussion has not concluded,
but there is a reasonable chance that the behavior of \link will at
least be enhanced to support the commonly used form of
\link[package]{topic} (rather than {filename} and that the warning
will not appear for these cases.
