It has no effect because the Scintilla R parser ignores the wordchars
argument and instead uses its own hard coded definition (which has a bug).
Which parts of the filetype definition files are actually used is dependent
on the parser for the particular language. Unfortunately I know of no
documentation in the Scintilla project (other than the code:-) that defines
what capabilities each parser has and what parameters are used.
