Searching vignettes only can be of interest to users. If someone is
interested in (full-fledged) code examples, and not in various
descriptions of functions, a "search vignette" facility would come in
As a personal example, recently I wanted to search all vignettes for
"mle" examples, but could find no way to do this. I had already
searched the help pages and was unable to find something of obvious
use to me.

Best regards,
