Paul,

For some of my vignettes that is true, too. For those, the vignette directory contains the .pdf produced on my machine and a "fake" .Rnw, which contains only the \Vignette*{} entries needed to get the vignette listed properly and an additional comment pointing users to the package homepage at r-forge where the real .Rnw and the raw data files are available.
To prevent the fake .Rnw producing an empty pdf that overwrites the one I provide, I use a Makefile - learnt that from one of Dirk EddelbŁttel's packages (forget which, but thanks, Dirk!)
