[Rd] Rd files with multiple functions?

I guess I'm using the wrong terminology, and also getting confused because \name
seems to mean both "topic" and "file".

Let me ask the broader question. What I would like to do is keep all my
documentation for a package in one file because this makes searching and editing
simpler (in the same way that I keep all the code in one .R file). I still end
up with a fairly large number of files since there are many packages involved,
but it's only a dozen or so, not hundreds. What I have been doing is keeping it
this way and then using a script to parse the file into multiple .Rd files which
I put in the man directory. Each of these files is a topic and has one \name
line. My question is: Is it still necessary for me to parse the file, or is that
being supported by R now?
