Thanks much! I tried using stage=render, but then I get an error at
install time:

Warning: /private/var/folders/59/0gkmw1yj2w7bf2dfc3jznv5w0000gn/T/RtmpCG4Qz9/R.INSTALLec4743ba8cf4/ps/man/ps_handle.Rd:45-48:
Section \Sexpr is unrecognized and will be dropped

And indeed the whole section is dropped.

Seems like there is no clean workaround here.

Thanks again,
