Thank you for your comments. I was indeed looking to use Rcpp for integration for the C++ portions where compiled code would have performance benefits while sticking to R code elsewhere.

I've had some previous bad experiences with Swig for interfacing C code with Python code but it looks like Rcpp is much more friendlier.

And thanks for the support!
