Drats! Forgot about that completely. As a feeble defense, they don't
quite do the same thing if there are multiple versions of a package
installed though. (system.file gives all of them, .path.package only
loaded packages).

Not that I remembered to check the help pages either, but we should
probably add something to the "See Also" on bothe of them.
