[Bioc-devel] adding multiple vignettes not all should be processed by the build-system

Hi Maarten

The most pragmatic way is perhaps to add a regular .Rmd file into the 
"vignettes/" directory, which does nothing but link (or even redirect?) 
to the prebuilt HTML file. (Not sure whether that can even be in the 
same directory, or whether it's better to put it somewhere under "inst/"?)

There's probably a way to copy the pre-built HTML files into the right 
place in "vignettes/" directory using a Makefile and making sure the 
indexing and landing page display is done. This used to work for vsn, 
but more recently I concluded this could be too unrobust and unportable. 
There's probably also value for your users in clearly seeing a 
difference between the dynamically built and the static documents, and 
in not confusing them with non-standard Makefile magic.
