[Rd] Documentation suggestion!

Could I suggest that the documentation of "locator" and "identify" be
modified so that they refer to each other and that the "graphic" keyword be
added to "identify". If you think it's a good idea of course, I would even
volunteer to do it if you can point me to the procedure. (What file(s) would
have to be modified beside Rd files if any and what do I do with them

I'm making this suggestion because I had a hard time locating them
especially "identify". I vaguely recalled the functionality was implemented
but I had forgotten the function names. I got to "locator" using
help.search("graphic") and as for "identify" I had to remember the name
which I finally did.

While writing this I took a look at some .Rd files, at keywords and at
keywords.db which are located in D:\R-1.2.0\doc of the main *nix source and
I wonder if there is any kind of information on how the help system works?
