[Rd] File permissions test during R CMD check

I (still) use RCS, and not CVS, for my own projects. R CMD check does not
like the 0444 file permissions on files check into RCS.  

I conjecture that this stems from desire to have the installed files in a
state in which they can be edited, but I might be off base ... In case my
conjecture holds, would it be possible to relax the restriction during R CMD
check, but then install the files as 0644 ?

Other than that, R CMD check is a very impressive tool.
