Ah... I checked my library and saw that 'parallel' did not exist there. Although
it comes natively with R (afaik), I tried to install it to see if I have the
same subfolder with the vignette:

| install.packages("parallel", type="source")
| Installing package(s) into ‘/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/library’
| (as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
| Warning: unable to access index for repository http://cran.ch.r-project.org/src/contrib

| package ‘parallel’ is not available (for R version 2.15.0)

When will 'parallel' be available for 2.15?
