[R] Adding .R to source file keeps R from reading it?

Hi,

I'm updating the LMGene package from Bioconductor. "Writing R Extensions" suggests
that all source files (the ones in the R directory) have a .R ending, so I added it to the (one) source file.
The next time I installed and ran R, R didn't understand any of the
functions.
I tried various things and eventually went back to the file and dropped the .R ending, installed, ran R. It worked!
For purposes of distributing the package, do I want to leave the name without the .R, or add the .R and change something else?
