In the @seealso tag of the roxygen2 package one typically links to another function like this @seealso \code{\link{functionName}}. I would like to link from one function to a whole family of functions (created using the @family tag). So something like @seealso \code{\link{@family familyName}}. Crucially, the function I would like to link from is not part of the family. Is this somehow possible besides the workaround of linking each member of the family individually?
