A quick solution is to use

_=%R print(?plot)

which should just print the help file. The R magic only displays
R's stdout, while in the terminal ?plot redirects to either an html browser
or something like less.

Perhaps a magic named something like

%Rhelp plot

could put this into ipython's help system.
