Ok, I'm done with that for now. There's more cruft to clean up, but that's for 
another day. Also, on and off, I'm working on getting rembedinternal.cpp to

- We only need a rather "narrow" interface to R. Our goal isn't to do speedy 
calculations in C++, but to add a GUI on to of R. Hence, for most things that 
we want to put into R-space, we can use plain R syntax.
- The other way around it's more interesting, and I'll take a closer look at 
the date/time classes one day. However, the place we really need this is the 
data editor, and we're generally well advised to try to use QStrings/QLists 
and such, there (+ we need to implement all the range checks and goodies from 
rcpp, in the data model, anyway). (core/rkvariable.cpp, our main data-storage 
for the data editor will need to be revised a lot, as well, but probably 
towards using Qt-classes).

So it seems like a good place to look at, when in doubt about how to deal with 
some R structures. But not something that is of much *direct* use to RKWard, I
