[Rd] Codoc mismatch for roxygen-documented foo<- functions

I have a roxygen2 documented package with functions for getting and setting an attribute.

#' Get or set the foo attribute.
#' Dummy function!
#' @param x Object to hold the attribute.
#' @param value Value to set the attribute to.
#' @return The get function returns the "foo" attribute of \code{x}.
#' @export

foo <- function(x)
  attr(x, "foo")

#' @rdname foo
#' @export

`foo<-` <- function(x, value)
  attr(x, "foo") <- value

If I save the above to foo.R and then do

package.skeleton("foo", code_files="foo.R") roxygenize("foo")

then the package checker gives me the warning

Codoc mismatches from documentation object 'foo': foo<-
  Code: function(x, value)
  Docs: function(x, value, value)

How should I be documenting this sort of setter function?
