For the record: The reason I used attr(myfun, "source") = FALSE, is that I 
misread the example 'Tidying R Code' in 'Writing R Extensions', which calls 
for attr(myfun, "source") = NULL.

Somehow setting 'source' to FALSE seems more natural to me than 
setting it to NULL.

ripley at stats.ox.ac.uk:
