AFAICT setting LazyLoad=No in DESCRIPTION might do the trick. 

For reasons I fail to understand I have to set it to that value for Debian
builds of the Rcmdr package, and the resulting package does indeed have R
code as plain sources. I'd agree with you that being able to read, and hence
search, the code is a good thing but I also trust the R masters on the
advantages of lazy loading.  There may be an option to diable it globally ...

Hth, Dirk

Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
