Well, I am the de-facto maintainer of inline and could incorporate changes
and extensions there. That's how cxxfunction got into inline. The last four
or five minor versions of inline were all done by people other that Oleg (who
is the original author).
I still feel pretty strongly that for anything beyond ad-hoc work and tests,
a package (rather than an inline "hack") should be used. In my view, that is
particularly true for a multi-person, multi-year effort such as Stan. But
what do I know...

I do not understand what you are trying to say here.
