Well, the answer is unknown / indeterminate as there is no formal test.  Any
expression involving a NumericMatrix, NumericVector, ... and, say, a scalar
or operator is by definiton sugar.

That said, quite a bit of sugar development was user-motivated and lead
e.g. to the addition of the d/q/p/r-functions. Doug also uses quite a bunch
in his lme4a rewrites / mixed-model development.

So if you are after 'sugar', then maybe the highest concentration is in the
corresponding unit test file runit.sugar.R.  

Hope this helps,  Dirk
