In the "Writing extensions for R" document, there is a part that reads:
"Using C++ iostreams, as in this example, is best avoided. There is no
guarantee that the output will appear in the R console..."
Does R do anything that would potentially cause a stream:: method in a
dynamically-loaded library to get stuck waiting for a mutex? Or is this
just a warning about potential formatting issues?
