[Rd] save/load hooks

I'd like to suggest a small feature be added to R.  It would be nice if
"load" and "save" had function hooks for object initialization and
finalization, e.g.,

	load.hook <- function(x) UseMethod("load.hook")
	save.hook <- function(x) UseMethod("save.hook")

These would then be called on each object saved or loaded.  The default
method would do nothing.   This would allow saved objects to
reinitialize their state when loaded.
