Hi Max,

discordant does not seem to have reverse deps to that's one less concern.

If you think you can manage to make all these changes before Sunday then 
I'd say go for it.

I've finished some updates to the package, but I am uncertain whether it would be better to update the package in 3.14 or push to the 3.15 devel branch. The key changes to the package are fixes to the C backend (now Rcpp) that prevent crashes from divide-by-zero errors, as well as a few other bug fixes. However, the changes also include altering two exported functions' default argument values (although the argument names remain the same). A more thorough list of changes is provided below. So, is it preferable to push the changes to 3.14, or should I push to the 3.15 branch?
