yes, or even quite a bit more quickly.
1) When inside the *help[R](something)*,
the simple "h" (for [h]elp) is equivalent to C-c C-v
2) The function bound to "h" (or C-c C-v), ess-display-help-on-object,
tries to smartly *guess* what you want, namely from the word,
your "point" (~= cursor) is inside.
Just point to that word (i.e. have "point" (~= the cursor) inside it)
