[Rd] CRAN: How to list a non-Sweave doc under "Vignettes:" on package page?

I have the same question. I wish vignettes which are shown in CRAN and
the package documentation are not restricted to Sweave (or I missed
something in the R-exts manual?). What I did in the past was to cheat
Sweave by putting an Rnw document which is essentially a tex document
(I used my own functions to compile Rnw to tex).
