I am building a package. I discovered that all \usage{} and
\examples{} in the .Rd file that are too long to fit on the .dvi page
are left as is. They run over the edge of the page and just keep on going.

I propose that a WARNING or ERROR be generated as part of Rcmd check for such cases.

The "test <-" line and both "test(" lines below are single lines. My mailer folds at about 100 characters.
