Patch to replace "his" in Writing R Extensions

R devel mailing list
Dear R-devel team,

Many thanks for the great resource that is "Writing R Extensions"!

I noticed two occurrences of "his", one to refer to the R package user, another to refer to the R package author. Folks in these two groups are not all men, so I suggest changing the word to "their" to make it gender-neutral. Attached is a patch for your consideration.

Thanks for your time, best regards,

Maëlle.
