There are two answers to your query.

1. To the question I think you really want the answer to, not yet.  We
should provide a variable in ess-site.el in which you can set arguments
that you always want used when starting R.  Martin or Tony?
Starting with M-x R would then be fast because the new variable
would bypass the current need for ESS to prompt you for the arguments.

2. The shellscript you propose still prompts you for the arguments.  I
personally don't see an advantage of this over the current M-x R.  I
would recommend a revision of your shellscript.  The shellscript you
propose generates an additional instance of emacs if you already have
an emacs running.  A better plan, that opens up a new *R* buffer in
the existing emacs, is the similar shellscript

#! /bin/sh
gnudoitw -q '(R t)' &

gnudoitw is available on NTemacs from
    /anonymous at ftp.cs.washington.edu:/pub/ntemacs/contrib/gnuserv.zip
and is also available for other emacs platforms.
The gnuserv package is not the same as the emacsserver package.
