Following Uwe's and Dirk's suggestions, here's a first pass at a list of
interesting "general" help pages:

?Rdconv      (RdUtils page: Rdconv, Rd2dvi, Rd2txt, Sd2Rd)
?Special     (beta, gamma, choose, ...)
?build       (PkgUtils page: R CMD build, R cmd check)
?connections (file, pipe, ...)
?pi          (Constants page: LETTERS, letters, month.abb, month.name, pi)

Note that the RdUtils, PkgUtils, and Constants pages cannot be accessed through
their names ("?RdUtils", etc).

I'd also suggest two additional general pages (which do not currently exist):
?System   (system, .Platform, Sys.info, Sys.getenv, Sys.putenv, getwd, setwd)
?Graphics (covering plot, lines, points, segments, par, Devices)
                              -- David Brahm (brahm at alum.mit.edu)
