In all fairness, it should probably be noted that quite a few people

Lest I give the impression of only dislike -- the coxme package (major
rewrite nearly done, I'm now testing) depends heavily on the bdsmatrix
package which implements a very particular subset of sparse matrix
methods. Coxme uses S3 classes, bdsmatrix use S4 classes, and I think I
made the right decision in both cases.
I'm glad people found the C++ reference enjoyable.
