[Rd] doc buglet: misleading description in ?source

source() works fine with connections, as explained in the entry for 'file' and in the 'Details' section. However, the description is misleading, saying that:

    'source' causes R to accept its input from the named file (the

     name must be quoted). Input is read from that file until the end
     of the file is reached. <...>
