Integrate R with 'RDocumentation'

Wraps around the default help functionality in R. Instead of plain documentation files, documentation will show up as it does on <https://www.rdocumentation.org>, a platform that shows R documentation from 'CRAN', 'GitHub' and 'Bioconductor', together with informative stats to assess the package quality.
