This R-help thread reminds me that it would be nice if the CRAN
website made vignettes for packages available in pdf form in the
same way that the manual pages are now available.

As the number of packages expands users might benefit from a brief
introduction to the package as an alternative, or in addition to,
a look at the manual.  It would also be a good inducement for
package writers to produce vignettes!
