I'm not happy at all with the html and latex version of the base help
files, because presenting (currently) 320 files in alphabetic order is
not a good way for unexperienced users.

I'm thinking about introducing a new command like \category or
whatever to split the help files up into parts like

graphics commands
random numbers
linear models

such that we can organize things a little bit. this way we could also
have a concise index of ALL functions available that is still

somthing like the categories list in the R-minus help window ...

what do you think?

how to organize such a thing (besides providing the technical means)?
