[R] 'library' documentation

In assembling a library, I noticed one or two things that caused me some
difficulty, and thought that these might also confuse others.

1) "R code files" indicates the _text_ version of the R code.  I didn't
realize this at first, and got parse errors until I looked inside one of
the other libraries.

2) "The code files to be installed must start with a (lower- or
uppercase) letter and have one of the extensions `.R', `.S', `.q', `.r',
or `.s'. "

In fact, they don't have to have any extension, and the libraries
supplied don't seem to have any either.  Am I missing something or is
this an historical artifact?

If it's appropriate to modify these, I'll be happy to submit an edited
.Rd file.
