help(nlme) would be ambiguous then.
help(package=nlme) already works, same as library(help=nlme).
I suppose we could make it a convention to have each package contain
an Overview entry so that help(Overview, package=nlme) would do what
you want (or even help(Overview, nlme) if we switch the arguments
around), but someone would have to write those pages....
