| On a related note, I've submitted a patch to the R-devel mailing list that should offer some performance improvements to the serialize/unserialize interface.

I haven't gotten any feedback yet from the R-devel mailing list.

Two thumbs way up from me for that post, by the way. I meant to microblog
about it as a great example of narrow, well-focussed, well-executed (AFAICT,
haven't patched it in) patch with an obvious speedup.
