Dear Hendrik,

When I do etags --help I get a list of languages, but none of which
seem to be for R, or recognise .R suffix.  

$ etags -V
etags (standalone 21.3.50)

It seems to work for functions in some files, but not others.  Can you
let us know how your etags finds functions - this is something we
could add to the manual.   (Or are you also passing a -r REGEXP

If you can provide a reproducible example, we can get looking into
this a bit deeper, thanks!
