Hi Jerry,

Within the structure of the installed package, the vignette(s) and 
compiled manual pages live in different directories and have different 
file extensions, so they can be distinguished. The changes you are 
describing are general to R packages, and would have to be enforced by 
the R core.

Best wishes
