[Rd] Small Extension to license()/licence()

By analogy with maintainer(), I suggest extending license() to give the licensing terms of packages as well as R itself when prompted. Below is a small patch in that direction. This won't break anything and imposes no significant maintenance burden; it has the advantage of making it ever so marginally easier to know package licenses.

Given the existence of license forms like GPL >=2, I don't see a easy programmatic way of identifying what RShowDoc() can provide and what it can't, so I've left that out.
