this summer, after few mails on this list, i started something similar
(feeling the same need)... here is the repo


Currently it's quite freezed since i'm working on other projects in my
free software spare time (and likely i won't return to it) but could
be a starting point for someone else interested.

Best, Luca

PS in the case, following some mails with Dirk and Achim, HPC stuff
a-la Rcpp and friends should not be copied from Dirk's stuff, better
pointing... it was in my mental TODO
