We don't currently have those.

Those are things you'd typically do in R, not in C/C++

That is what you usually do in a C/C++ world

One thing you can do perhaps is look into armadillo, which we wrap
nicely with the RcppArmadillo package. and thanks to Doug, the wrapping
is even nicer now since armadillo is packed up inside RcppArmadillo (but
this version is not released yet).
We will not implement these operators soon because it is very easy to
not do it right. armadillo does it nicely.
