Hard to tell.  (What does `balk at' really mean?  What OS?  What is meant
by `now'?: there is no `1.9' and 1.9.0 is six months ago.  And so on.)

There are many packages on CRAN with sub-directories of inst (I presume
that is what you mean by `folder'), for example MASS, sm, spatstat, and
several (e.g. strucchange) have an inst directory just containing a doc 

As I hope is clear we would need a lot more information.  Also, I think 
R-devel is a more appropriate place to ask such questions.
