[Rd] Package "datasets" not exporting anything on a recent R-2.15.1-patched

I just stumbled on the following apparent oddity: the package "datasets" does not appear to export anything out of its namespace:

> ns_datasets <- getNamespace('datasets')
> getNamespaceExports(ns_datasets)


Not the case with other packages (example here with "utils"):
> ns_utils <- getNamespace('utils')
> head(getNamespaceExports(ns_utils))

[1] "?" ".DollarNames" "adist" "alarm" "apropos" [6] "aregexec"

Is this a temporary glitch, or is there something new and specific to "datasets" ?
