Yes, but it isn't as automated as one might want.  Doug Bates
suggested a possibly better format/processing system recently to me
(which might be alternatively useful as a post-noweb/sweave processor,
instead of on its own): doxygen, which uses javadoc-style comments,
and whose resulting documentation COULD be converted to *.Rd style
