That may be a little tricky for a few reasons:
i) We just released Rcpp 0.12.2. I spend a considerable amount of time
testing prior to a release. This time we had three full reverse
dependency checks totalling over 1500 builds given the 500+ revdeps.
Any such issue would have stopped us.
ii) AFAIK Carlos wrote guitar years ago yet he never pushed it to CRAN. We
made changes to Rcpp Modules during this time, we also made changes to
how exception escalate (different OS drive this...). Because this
package only ever stayed on GitHub this did not get tested. Else we
would have known sooner.
iii) Rcpp Modules is a clever trick that is rather useful. Sadly, it is not
that well documented and its principal creator has moved on too so the
code is not exactly actively maintained.
So here we need a volunteers to dive it this and debug, maybe bisect with
older Rcpp releases, ...
It looks like this won't be Carlos, and it probably won't be me either.
