[Rd] class extension and documentation

I've added a "backsolve" method to the bdsmatrix library. Per the Extending manual section 7.1 I've also added the following 3 lines along with my setMethod definitions for 2 classes.

backsolve <- function(r, ...) UseMethod("backsolve") backsolve.default <- base:::backsolve
formals(backsolve.default) <- c(formals(backsolve.default), alist(... = ))

I've also added a backsolve-methods.Rd page, though since my arguments are identical to the default it doesn't say much. And, after a test failed, added the new backsolve.default routine to my export list.

Now R CMD check claims that I need Rd pages for backsolve and backsolve.default. I don't think I should rewrite those.

   How do I sidestep this and/or
   what other manuals should I read?

Perhaps do setMethod("backsolve", signature(r="ALL"),

                           base:::backsolve(r, ...))
instead?
