[igraph] igraph trough Rcpp

Hello, this is my first time on a mailing list (sorry if I don't match the standars).

I'm not an expert, but as I can see in the igraph R package there are 3 layers:

i. the standard C igraph library (independent of R)
ii. the set of wrapper R functions
iii. another layer of C code that interfaces between i. and ii.

If I'm not wrong, the layer iii. is not developed trough the usage of 
Rcpp (see http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/Rcpp/index.html).
It may be nice to "rewrite" iii. (and maybe ii.) in the Rcpp way. To do that will 
allow easier the writing of fast implementations of critical algorithms that
eventually will be called from R. Also, I think that it will make more
understandable and easier the usage of the igraph library.

Is it possible? It will demand to much work or dificulties?

As I said before, I'm not an expert (I know some of C++ and a little about R),  
but maybe I can help in some way.

Best Regards
