But only to make use of loadhistory() in your .Rprofile, when it is
preferable to use utils::loadhistory.  (He appears to be talking about 
using RGui menus.)

But why would you want to do that when the loading of a commands history
is controlled by command-line flags and the name by the R_HISTFILE
environment variable?
