        I see that this could be useful for R-devel, but considering the volume of traffic and the kind of contents on R-help, I don't think such tying to the actual source code would be so useful. Perhaps trac could be used as an integrated interface for r-devel/svn and the bug track system, and another wiki solution be used exclusiverly for the r-help community (which includes many people not directly interested in coding or development issues).
