List model. I was just wondering why the behaviour is different for cube (tries 
to avoid a copy) than for vec/mat when using as<>() (always? forces a copy).

I see. That is a potentially more hairy question because now we at the
'conversion from SEXP' (as a member of Rcpp::List) level.

The nice thing is that we have an existence proof in what Rcpp Attributes
does, so you could always re-run snippets like the one I have below with
verbose=TRUE (and maybe rebuild=TRUE).  In this case we see

  Rcpp::traits::input_parameter< arma::cube& >::type x(xSEXP);
  test2(x);

The differences between vec and mat on the one hand and cube on the other are
probably accidental. If you have time to chase this and clean it up a PR
would be great.
