Hey Hans,

awesome work, thanks a million!

I noted some small quirk:
Previously invoking help on a keyword (CTRL-H) , say "recode" yielded  
(in my case) four packages that contain that function (Hmisc, car,  
depmix, memisc).

But now I get a list of packages -- for exampel 5 hits in the base  
package -- which as far as I can tell are unrelated to any for of
