Off topic, but I am curious how you maintain the parallel installs in your home directory given the Mac binary package's proclivities to dump things into /Library/Frameworks/?   Do you compile from source, with appropriate --prefix to keep your installation sandboxed in ~/bin?

On my macOS I do this using command-line aliases and the R_LIBS_USER environment variable

 $ alias bioc-3.9
 alias bioc-3.9='R_LIBS_USER=~/Library/R/3.6/Bioc/3.9 ~/bin/R-3-6-branch/bin/R'

but other solutions are possible
