Well, yes and no.

I've been rewriting an OCaml-R binding from Maxence Guesdon, which was only scratching the surface of the API. (Not meaning to depreciate his work: it indeed had the merit of existing and being approximately functional).

And he had a binding to embed R, and simultaneously a binding of the standalone mathematical library.

I'm trying to make a significant upgrade of his binding, and to avoid regressions, I'm wrapping the standalone R mathlib. That's why...

Nevertheless, I'll have to think at one point in time of bringing the functionality to the part of my library that embeds R, as you pointed out.
