[R] plot math Q: How to "plot" hat(f') ?

In nonparametric regression and density estimation, something like
 \hat{f'}(x)  [LaTeX]  is very natural.
In all S dialects,
is invalid syntax, and hence one cannot use something like
   plot(1, main = expression(hat(f')))

I can say something like

   plot(1, main = expression(widehat(paste(f, "'"))), cex.main = 3)

but that (the R code, not the plot result) is a bit ugly.
Nicer solutions are welcome...
