I used this approach happily in the nabor package (on github) but the only caveat is that from R you need to call with something like:


You can get some interesting crashes if you pass the R reference class (i.e. B) directly as the argument. I guess it might be better to have a derived R class that looks after extracting the .CppObject field.
