[Rd] Suggested tidying up

Package grDevices has a function cm() to convert from inches to centimeters. Its definition is:

cm <- function(x) 2.54*x

As far as I can tell, the function is not used anywhere in the R sources (I grepped for "cm(", "cm)" and ", cm".) I did not check for all packages on CRAN, though.

May I propose to remove this apparently useless function from the sources?

[I stubbled upon this function because my package actuar also has a cm() function that masks the one from grDevices.]
