I saw that, but actually I was wondering if there was a more general method.  I’d like to use plain text files if I can, instead of Rda files, since they’re easier to maintain (and it’s a small file).

If I put them in data/, then R CMD check asks me to document them but I’d prefer it if they floated beneath the surface, without the users awareness.
