[Rd] prefix 'R_' when calling external code

I noticed that in

https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk/src/library/stats/R/loess.R

that we are now calling R_loess_raw, R_lowesw, R_lowesp, etc. I'm interested to know what is the benefit/reason for the 'R_', as I am unfamiliar with this prefix and do not see it mentioned in 'Writing R Extensions.'

Thanks,
Ben
