[Rd] How to change names when importing with a NAMESPACE (was: NAMESPACE Q: does import as exist?)

Well, it seems that the following does what I want. In the NAMESPACE file, one can do:

  importFrom("pkgA", foo=bar)

Which will allow you to use the symbol 'foo' to refer to pkgA::bar. This is exactly what I wanted.

Despite the lack of documentation, this seems an intentional feature. Is there a reason not to document it and allow it as part of the NAMESPACE feature set?

Best,

+ seth
