Hi, Dirk.  I guess it takes a village to raise a successful R package, so in
that sense your "Thank You!" to the users of Rcpp & Friends is appropriate.

But I like to think that for both kids and R packages the "parents" play an
essential role.  I've been waiting for somebody to offer the obvious "back at
you, dude!" response, but I haven't seen one.  So let me be the first: thanks
to you and Romain for creating, maintaining, and updating Rcpp.
