The deeper question is if 'we all' can have a conversation about extending
the directory layout / format to add things to the packaging infrastructure.
What comes to mind is e.g.

  - a spell-checker white list (per Carlos' initial email)
  - more generally, 'white list' of warnings R CMD check can be quiet about [1]

  - more hooks, ie I would like to call roxygen2::roxygenize() as well as
    Rcpp::compileAttributes() when building

  - [ This place intentionally left blank. Let me hear other proposals. ]

We have a year to mess things up for R 3.4.0, so anybody else intereted in
working on this?


[1] There is no point in telling me that Rcpp creates a shared library of
over 1 mb. It has been doing so for years.  C++ libraries have a footprint.
