[Rd] sum and partial argument name matching

"sum" (and perhaps other functions?) allows partial argument
name matching after its three-dots argument:
> sum(1:4, NA, n=78, na.rm=FALSE)
> sum(1:4, NA, n=78, na.rm=TRUE)
I can see there could be a discussion about whether or not this is
a bug, but I think all will agree that it's a might peculiar.
This is done in 2.0.1 but the same behavior is in 1.8.1.
