How to use src layout with R packages


I have a R project that has the following directory structure:

├── python_package/
├── R/

It's an R project with a reticulate to python code backend. I'd really love to move the source code to a src structure to keep things neat:

├── src/
│   ├── python_package/
│   ├── R/

However I'm not seeing this used anywhere other R projects. In fact I'm frequently seeing src used to host C extensions.

Is my intuition correct? And should I avoid doing something like this?
