[Rd] .First.lib and namespaces

The lattice package has a namespace, so it has a .onLoad function. I also keep around a .First.lib, for use during development, when I temporarily delete the NAMESPACE file.

When using a namespace, I used to comment out the .First.lib function. However, that seems unnecessary since it's not executed anyway. Is this intended (and dependable) behaviour?

(If so, this should probably be mentioned in ?library, which currently says

     '.First.lib' is called when a package is loaded; '.Last.lib' is
     called when a package is detached.

without any mention of namespaces).
