The much-appreciated feed of changes to NEWS.Rd list this today [1]:

  2.15.2 UTILITIES   ‘R CMD check’ now checks for ‘.C()’, ‘.Call()’, ‘.External()’ and   ‘.Fortran()’ calls in other packages, and gives a warning on those found from   R itself (which are not part of the API and change without notice: many will   changed for R 3.0.0).

Could this be clarified/rewritten? I honestly cannot make out what it is supposed to say, apart from inferring that use of the API via these functions will be patrolled more strongly.
