Yikes!! -- I just noticed this sitting unattended in a procmail-sorted mail
folder for four days. Ouch. Sorry about that.

Can you run 'R CMD check RProtoBuf' ?  That would run them too...

And I guess we would need to design a unit test or two or three to test the
new functionality, no?   

Thanks for the submission. It looks good so far.

Cheers, Dirk
