I have a couple R7 questions

I have a couple questions.

  1. Is R7 the same as S7 or are they different?

  2. Is there overlap between S7 and vctrs?

  1. R7 was renamed S7 last week : Rename package to S7 (#276) · RConsortium/OOP-WG@f277695 (github.com)
  2. I don't think so in the conventional sense.

I am having some difficulty figuring out when to use vctr and when to design something as an S7. Is there guidance on this?

My thought is that a vctr object can be expressed as an S7 correct?

The mantra in R is that everything is a vector. vctrs are vectors with nice coercion properties. But vctr objects, I think, can be described completely by S7.
