That's one of the purposes of the namespace. See Prof. Tierney's article in
the R Newsletter, or the slides of his keynote lecture at the useR! 2004
conference. It's also explained in the `Writing R Extensions' manual.
Basically you only export functions that the users should see. The manual
also explains how to not document functions that aren't intended to be
called by users.
