^ I could have been more explicit. This is what I meant. You might may or
may not be able to do this in the sourceCpp() framework, though. How you do
this is much more obvious if you go the route of making an Rcpp package.
For as much as the convenience functions are a blessing, I've always found
it hard to think about how I'd do more complex things with them. It could
be possible, I just don't see it. I find the package approach to be a nice
balance between abstracting away from some details but keeping some in the
forefront of your mind. If you email me off the list and I can send you a
very small package that using Rcpp. Multiple C++ functions are created,
only some are exposed to R.
It seems like you'd probably do something similar.
