And I think I was trying to explain to you that 
 - becase _R_ only knows double and 
 - does dispatch by _name_ only 
there is no clean way in which _Rcpp_ can maintain these as two distinct
versions under the same name.  In short, just because you can template at the
C++ level does not mean that Rcpp can shoehorn both variants up to

As always, I may of course be wrong and there might be a way.
