[Rd] Suggestions for help pages

Dear all,

Can I make two suggestions regarding help pages.

1) Reflect the current package version on the help pages. Example
	truehist {MASS v7.1-14} or truehist {MASS}{7.1-14}

2) Put all of the help.start() pages online like www.perldoc.com. I
realise that there exists
and few others but it would be nice to have it on an official page or
linked from it. It would also be nice to have these pages updated
automatically everytime there is new package or new version release.

Of course 2) may create some confusion if the package version that the
help page was based on is different from the installed version, which is
why 1) should be considered as well.

Thanks. Hope this helps,
