[BioC] More than one package document with the same name

For the BiocCheck of the vignette name, one could also check that the 
vignette file name is not 'package.[Rnw|Rmd]'.  This would give more 
flexibility, and avoid a fixed naming scheme.

Since the issue affects all R packages - bioc or not -, I still think it 
is worth trying to address this at the R level.

Best wishes
