i implemented something similar in koRpus with functions explicitly called 
"get.kRp.env()" and "set.kRp.env()", instead of "kRp.env()" and "kRp.env()<-". 
so far no-one complained ;-)

i do use the "()<-" notation when i'm changing values of objects in 
.GlobalEnv; e.g., change the language setting of a text object by

  language(object) <- "en"

as this feels much more intuitive than something like

  yourFunct(obj, lang="en")

so, if i did this, set.HTMLFile() and get.HTMLFile() or similar would be my 
naming of choice.
