OK, so how about this.

Have \*R be (Reg) as God intended.  But also trap any arguments being
passed to .R and error else they'll otherwise disappear as we saw with
mkisofs.  The use of just `.R' on a line to affect the next line won't
work but the next line of text won't disappear so it's not too bad.

Perhaps the Ultrix-specific file can disappear in the future?
