We could add a 'Suggests: RcppEigenFastLm' (or whichever name we end up with).

It would help with a thing or too -- didn't you even discover a slight
NAMESPACE issue on the R side recently?

Yes.  Hence my question to Doug.  

And headers-only wasn't an option when fastLm() was first set up.  Might be
time to improve on things after the 0.10.7 / 0.11.0 release.
