[Rd] syntax difference clusterExport in parallel and snow

We got some errors and eventually figured out that
parallel::clusterExport second argument is "varlist" while in
snow::clusterExport it is "list".

The user had loaded parallel first, but did something else which
inadvertently loaded snow, then clusterExport failed because we had
"varlist" and not "list".

Are these different on purpose?
