[Rd] Order of options in options()

As the number of options has grown, I have found it harder and harder to 
spot if a particular option is set, as well as to find descriptions in the 
help file.  Currently options() lists them in the order they were first 

I would find it much easier if the options were listed in alphabetical 
order both in the help file and as output.

Does anyone see any reason to retain the current order?
