[Rd] documenting S4 replacement methods

I'm writing a package that uses S4 classes. I'd like to have a 'coef<-' method for one or more of the classes. The generic is defined already (in nlme). Defining it is no problem, but I can't seem to figure out how to handle the documentation. In particular, I'd like a \usage entry in the .Rd file but no variant of

\S4method{coef<-}{mif}(object, pars, ..., value)
\S4method{coef<-}{mif}(object, pars, ...) <- value
\S4method{coef}{mif}(object, pars, ...) <- value

does the job. Is there a way to have the \usage line in the .Rd file? If so, what is the correct syntax?

Thanks in advance,
