The lme4a package currently depends on Rcpp_0.8.3 and uses some
"sugar" constructions - but only in a few places and I could replace
those with explicit loops or calls to std::transform fairly easily.

I see that Rcpp_0.8.3 is available on CRAN as the source code package
but the Windows and OS X binaries are still at 0.8.2

Furthermore the nightly R-forge builds of lme4a are failing on Windows
and OS X when they hit a sugar construction.

Would I be well-advised to back out the use of Rcpp sugar if I want to
have a package available for the tutorial preceding useR!2010?  It is
not a big deal to do that but still it is something I would prefer to
avoid if Windows and Mac OS X builds of 0.8.3 are just around the
