[R] Definition of "wrapper"?

I think I more or less understand what a łwrapper˛ is, but Iąd like to hear how more experienced R users define it, and especially I'd like to know if there is a formal definition. In my reading, it seems like there are a fairly wide range of meanings, but they are all conceptually similar.

I've looked in a couple of the classic R texts, the extensions and developers' manuals, and R help archives, and didn't find a definition. Of course, I may have missed it.

Thanks in advance. Bryan
