No, no such utility exists as far as I know. But as you say, it should
be relatively straightforward to write one: the Rd files are
concatenated and compressed into man/pkg.Rd.gz, and the R files are
concatenated into R/pkg. You just need to watch out for comments in the
files that will be mistaken for separators.
