R cell magic broken in docker and in documentation

Issue #434 wontfix

created an issue

I'm trying to use the rpy2/jupyter docker image and the %%R cell magic doesn't work. Should be dead easy to reproduce:

docker pull rpy2/jupyter
docker run --rm -p 8888:8888 rpy2/jupyter

open a notebook, run this code:

%%R
pi

Which will produce the output: ERROR: Cell magic %%R not found.

I was googling the error and I noticed that it is also present in the documentation for 2.7.x
