[R-SIG-Mac] vignettes

I find it very useful to read vignettes when they exist, but somehow  
they do not get installed when I install binaries through R app. For  
instance, today I installed gsubfn and talked with its author, Gabor.  
He told me to consult the vignette, which I did not know existed.  
Gabor told me that on Windows, any vignette existing for a package  
gets downloaded when you install the package. Would it be possible for  
R app to do the same? I think it would be very useful.

Thanks in advance,
