Ok, thank you Henning.

ESS core tends to agree..

however ...

Have you (Henning) looked at ess-roxygen and the
(ess-roxygen-fn) that we've provided for a while a bit more than
a year and bound to C-c C-o ?

Of course, you do much more than that in ess-roxy.el
it seems to me that your (ess-roxy-update-entry)
is similar [but more general!] to the current ESS function
In order to keep back compatibility, it may be that dropping
ess-roxygen.el in favor of ess-roxy.el, additionally binding
ess-roxy-update-entry to C-c C-o,
and maybe allowing a flag {optional argument} for ess-roxy-update-entry
to do more closely what C-c C-o does now.

Note that there are problem with ess-roxy.el too
(I've found typo, one function use of a function not loaded in
 standard emacs 23),
so we'd potentially be glad if someone [ Henning? ] who uses
ess-roxy regularly [not ESS-core at the moment] would "sign"
responsible for its maintenance for a while.
