[R] indentation in Rd-help files

Dear colleagues,
Happy New Millennium, first of all!
It would be very nice to be able to use indentation inside \code{ } as
well, not only in \examples{ } when writing Rd-help files. Such a
situation arrises, for instance, if one wishes to include a small piece
of code in the _main_ text but not in the end as \examples{ } command
does. The only way I know to put the next 3 lines

my.function <- function()

inside the text is the following:

\code{my.function <- function()  } \cr
 \code{ \{    }  \cr
 \code{    other.function() }  \cr
\code{  \}   }

I have tried all possible combinations of \t, \sp, \tab without success
- identation is lost. Probably, there is another way of doing this, say,
a command similar to \examples but without title printing text where it
is and how it is (\verbatim{} ???)

(please, answer to my email rather than to the newsgroup)

Thank you in advance
