Do you know about this package


using the package RcppMsgPack (currently in the off-CRAN repo ghrr-drat) ?

I could look into getting RcppMsgPack onto CRAN too.  I really like MsgPack.

As Duncan already said, you need to shorten the path to arrive at 104
characters. That is (no kidding) the main reason the Boost Headers package is
called BH to only use two chars.  There is still one file in there I rename
for each release for this very reason to a shorter name -- 104 chars it is.
