[Rd] Identical copy of base function

Hello,

Regarding this in R-devel/NEWS/New features :

o ‘library(pkg)’ no longer warns about a conflict with a function from ‘package:base’ if the function is an identical copy of the base one but with a different environment.

Why would one want an identical copy in a different environment? I'm thinking I may be missing out on a trick here.

Matthew
