Indeed, and this has been my position for a number of years. Having said
that, dynamic linking / headers in my experience increase the chance of
breaking and it is usually a kind of breakage which requires substantial
insight to fix (as opposed to say changing the order / naming of arguments
in an R function, which is really easy to diagnose even if you know nothing
about the package).
