Now that Rcpp 0.9.10 is out, we were able to follow up with RcppArmadillo
0.2.25 which depends on it.  

With this version, Armadillo no longers uses std::cout by default but rather
the clever Rcpp::Rcout which Jelmer Ypma had contributed.  So now I/O from
C++ (eg Armadillo) and R are all well coordinated.  And R CMD check no longer
complaints.  All good.  

This release also fixes two buglets spotted by Teo Guo Ci and Gershon Bialer
which affected more esoteric builds (with C++0x support, or with old g++) and
Martin Renner kindly ran some tests verifying all this. Thanks to all for the

The NEWS entry is below.  I may add some on the blog.
