[R] Sections for help files

When compiling a package, is there any way of making the help files
(html or chtml) have separate sections for functions and data sets? When
looking at the help file for a package with a large number of help
pages, it would be nice to have the functions appear first and the data
sets appear second rather than have them jumbled together

Currently, under Windows, chtml files have an tree index with object
names under one node and object Titles under another node. Something
like this would work with one node for functions and one node for data

Can this be done? Would it be possible to incorporate such a feature
into future releases, either optionally or as the standard for all
