For some of my vignettes that is true, too. For those, the vignette
directory contains the .pdf produced on my machine and a "fake" .Rnw,
which contains only the \Vignette*{} entries needed to get the vignette
listed properly and an additional comment pointing users to the package
homepage at r-forge where the real .Rnw and the raw data files are
To prevent the fake .Rnw producing an empty pdf that overwrites the one
I provide, I use a Makefile - learnt that from one of Dirk Eddelbüttel's
packages (forget which, but thanks, Dirk!)
