 In other words,
 The patch probably means "R version XXX move YYY from Rdevices.h to 
Rembedded.h" or
 "Rdevices.h had been deprecated since R version XXX, so use Rembedded.h for 
 I said that it is API change of R.

 If rpy will be built with R-2.11.1, will be installed and works file.
 But how about a situation, if rpy-1.0.3 was built with R-2.11.0,
 then update R to 2.11.1 (no rebuild of rpy), is rpy-1.0.3 still usable or need
 to rebuild with R-2.11.1?
