One scheme I quite like (despite its "heavy" feel) is what Martin Maechler had cooked up for the Rmetrics packages, based on earlier work by Gregor Gorjanc in the gdata package:

Any Rmetrics package can serve as an example. I just checked with timeSeries.

It may be possible to detect whether these are called during R CMD check or not. If not, it may be worth adding another variable, or value in options() or whathaveyou to make it detectable.
