[Rd] bug.report and wait

I have being looking at bug.report in an attempt to separate out a Sys.mail function.
The unix version of bug.report does not have a "wait" parameter but the Windows
version does.  I find that in Unix with my editor set to nedit I really do need a
wait parameter. This is because nedit forks a separate process and returns, so
currently unix bug.report sends the unedited stub file.

Does anyone object to bug.report having a wait parameter? Should the default be FALSE
which would replicate current behavior in Unix or TRUE which would be safer and
correspond to the Windows version?
