Recent versions of R have a function called undoc(), which finds
functions without documentation, e.g.

> undoc('tcltk')
[1] ".Last.lib"      "tkplace.slaves" "tktitle<-"     

This is mainly intended for package writers who can use it to find
functions that need to have documentation written. (And, oops, we seem
to have a couple of missing \alias{}s there...)
