[Rd] S4 initialize or "generating function"

apologies if I missed something well known. I'm just revising an own
package and wonder if it is still common to use "generating
functions" which have the same name as the corresponding S4 class as
suggested by Chambers, 2001. "Classes and Methods in the S Language".

-- or should one consequently use new and initialize to do such things?

Thank you

Thomas P.
