what do you mean by "playing"?

Are you offering to write documentation?
Starting points are

Examples in
	 src/library/base/man/text.Rd	 and.. some other *.Rd
then doc/manual/plotmath.tex (which does NOT contain all the new additions:)

but mainly  Ihaka / Murrell's  report on mathematical annotation
which was mentioned by Ross on Dec.31 and which is
not publicly available anymore now, since it is Copyright by JCGS where it
will appear as publication `soon'.....
Ross actually promised some documentation himself.
One could produce something, using the LaTeX source of section 4 of the
above paper.  Ross will have to say what is legally available, however.

and the final joke:
  In R, everything is ``documented'' via source availability:
