The change that this thread is a reaction to happened a few days ago, not
12 months ago. If I wavered in the past it was because I was being
forced to compete with my own work, not a pleasant place to be.

Are you telling me that you refuse to stop using my name
in Rcpp (except in copyright notices)?

Are you telling me that you will continue to use my name and
update the associated status as you see fit, whether or not I
approve or consent to those changes?

Please answer yes or no.
