Unfortunately this is something we **strongly** discourage.
It's important to understand that your vignettes can break any time
(e.g. when something they depend on changes), not just when you update
your package. This is why Bioconductor vignettes should always be
located in the vignettes/ folder of the package, and be "real"
vignettes, that is, they must contain code chunks that get evaluated by
'R CMD check'.
