I don't know whether any decision was made on how to attempt to provide links within code to Rhelp.
One possibility (that I now have working) is to take all the R help files from their directory structure and
place them in a single directory and use the GeShi function-to-url link:


That is, "flatten" the R help files. All that is required for this to work is a good R.php language file 
combined with a directory containing files for all the commands. Links within the command files also 
redirect appropriately. I would be willing to volunteer to keep an up-to-date R.php language

This seems more in line with what a user would be interested in getting were they to click on a command
within some code instead of having a search done that results in numerous peripheral results.
