 I am not sure if you have seen Joseph Wang's earlier emails today. He indicated that there is some work related to adding the inflation functions into the "QuantlibSWIG." I am checking details tonight to help with the process. Is that what you are offering to do too? Will you be helping with this process?
With all due respect, you had missed the hint by Joe that QuantlibSwig was
different from RQuantLib. QuantlibSwig is more comprehensive, more
ambitious and (in my humble but biased opinion) quite a bit harder to setup.
So what Khanh offered you is pretty kind as you probably have RQuantLib's
ease of use (eg: binaries from CRAN) in mind.
That said, the community could do with a few more helping hands. So if this
leads to more code (and documentation and unit tests and ...) getting into
RQuantLib then I am all for it.

 If you already had the functions implemented, I can help you integrating them into R using RQuantLib..
