I've always thought is *WAS* deliberate...
At least it made sense to me at the time when I thought about it.

Anyway, we shouldn't be ``bossy'' on users, therefore,
I am about to change it (and its documentation)...


BTW, Fritz,  do we have [or will we soon ? ;-) ]

	 \item first
	 \item second

	and the same for \itemize{ ... } ....
  [ However, LaTeX's  ``description'' is already taken in our Rd format..... ]
