[Rcpp-devel] Not able to convert from Rcpp::NumericVector to Teuchos::ArrayRCP<size_t>

From what I understand of ArrayRCP, having read the documentation for a few minutes. (http://trilinos.sandia.gov/packages/docs/r9.0/packages/teuchos/doc/html/classTeuchos_1_1ArrayRCP.html)
This looks like a vector and therefore it is likely that the default Exporter<T> will not be useful as it tries to use the constructor taking a SEXP : 

		template <typename T>
		class Exporter{
		    Exporter( SEXP x ) : t(x){}
		    inline T get(){ return t ; }

		    T t ;
		} ;

you can use a RangeExporter instead which looks more compatible to what ArrayRCP looks like: 

		template <typename T> class RangeExporter {
		    typedef typename T::value_type r_export_type ;

		    RangeExporter( SEXP x ) : object(x){}

		    T get(){
		        T vec( ::Rf_length(object) );
		        ::Rcpp::internal::export_range( object, vec.begin() ) ;
		        return vec ;

		    SEXP object ;
		} ;

You can probably do this by having something like this early enough (after RcppCommon.h but before Rcpp.h). 

namespace Rcpp {
namespace traits {

  template <typename T> class Exporter<  Teuchos::ArrayRCP<T> > : public RangeExporter< Teuchos::ArrayRCP<T> >{
    Exporter( SEXP x) : RangeExporter< Teuchos::ArrayRCP<T> >(x){}
