[Rd] reorder [stats] and reorder.factor [lattice]

It was recently pointed out on the lists that the S-PLUS Trellis suite has a function called reorder.factor that's useful in getting useful ordering of factors for graphs. I happily went ahead and implemented it, but it turns out that R (not S-PLUS) has a generic called reorder (with a method for "dendrogram"). Naturally, this causes R to think I'm defining a method for "factor", and gives a warning during check because of mismatching argument names.

Any suggestions as to what I should do? Retaining S compatibility doesn't seem to be an option. I could make a reorder method for "factor" (which sounds like a good option to me), or rename it to something like reorderFactor.
