This is just reporting what I see using Bioc-devel:
I get a TOC where each line looks like
<BULLET> <SECTION_NUMBER_AS_LINK> <SECTION_TITLE_AS_LINK>
While I agree that the bullet is kind of ugly (and would be great to get
rid of), I do get the section numbering functionality you want.
Note: for this report I am rendering the Rmd file myself, I haven't tested
how it looks when I do it as a vignette.
It would be great to expand on the BiocStyle vignette and discuss citations
and other issues and also include a clear template file. I am planning on
doing some pull request along those lines soon; I have been testing Rmd ->
HTML extensively for a course I am developing, but I am also new to the
knitr+markdown thing so I am still experimenting.
