Try duplicating (select the in Applications and do Command-D).
Double click both versions and you have 2 completely separated versions of R.
You can drag/place the multiple icons in the dock.

Some issues will show up, e.g. it will use the history from the version that was closed
last, both copies will share preferences, etc.

I would be interested why you use this setup (I can think of a few reasons), but
would like to understand yours. If you can send these to me directly or to the R-SIG-Mac,
that would be appreciated.
