[R] dead code removal

Ideally you'd have the next two items available:
- tests that ensure that your code carries out what it should and as it should.
- a coverage analysis tool that reports what parts of your code have
been and have not been executed by your tests above.
Neither of those are mandatory though, but they will save you from
nightmares later on.
While there are a few tests harnesses for doing the former (i.e.
RUnit, test_that and so on...), I am not aware of any code coverage
tools for R, sadly.
