New stuff is great! The problem is if the ABI changes,
and normal shared libraries have the same problem, I guess.
There, the dynamic linker somehow solves the problem,
using the SONAME, and complaining on mismatch. Can there be
something similar in R/Rcpp ? Something that'd give a proper
error message upon package loading, instead of crashes
and frustrated end-users ?
