[R] Rdversion ???

I just noticed that a help file in one of my packages contains,
as the second line (just after the \name{ }  macro), the line

> \Rdversion{1.1}

I have no idea how it got there.  I can find no reference to this
macro in WRE, but by doing some groping, err, grepping around I have
discovered its presence in a number of help files for other packages.

Can anyone explain to me what it's for, and what its provenance is?

Is it important?

Thanks for any enlightenment.
