Cool.  Otherwise 'two thumbs way up' for Ben's suggestion re the unit tests.

We have well over 100 now in Rcpp, but mostly for Romain's new API and am
very slowly catching up for the older API.  What may matter most (RCppParams,
RcppResultSet) is in, I will add more.  May take til 0.7.5 and I will attempt
to get 0.7.4 out this eve so that we get the proper OS X support.


Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
