[R] R and readline

Dear list,

I have the latest R (2.7.2) build with readline (version 5.2) suppport
and installed on a machine running Gentoo Linux.  To save some typing it
tried to use .inputrc file with a construct for R, which according to
documentation should be "RCustomCompletion".  I tried both:

$if RCustomCompletion

$if application=RCustomCompletion

But without any effect, R honors all _global_ customizations in the
.inputrc file, though.

Any help, comments or pointers will be greatly appreciated.  Best,
