Please note that this feature won't work correctly in 15.09-1,
unless you use semantic paragraphing.

We now have a more general testing framework in place that will
help us avoid such unfortunate regressions.

So if you edit a lot of roxygen documentation, please use either
semantic roxy paragraphing as described in my previous email, or
use the dev version of ESS.
