Yeah, that's the problem with both of those, that it doesn't only contain

Oh, I thought about it, but then I figured for this to work consistently,
every user would have to generate his own defs, depending on what packages
he has installed, which would be a bit bothersome I guess.

Perhaps, so I send this reply there, I sent the original post to r-help
because I figured it might be an easy question for most. I assume that
most of the R-devel members are on the R-help list so I do not resend my
original post. If this assumption doesn't hold, please let me know.
