[Rd] Transferring ownership of R-managed buffer

I have a use case where I would like to create an SEXP around an existing
buffer that is managed by R, thus avoiding a copy operation. If I have
void *p = (void*) RAW(PROTECT(Rf_allocVector(RAWSXP, n)));
... additional maniupulation ...
SEXP x = somefunc(SXPTYPE, n, p); // ????
Is there a "placement" constructor available? (I have arranged for the
corresponding UNPROTECT.) I've looked at and experimented with R_allocator
and allocVector3, but can't quite get it right. I know this is odd, but it
makes sense for my use case.
Thanks for any pointers.
