[ESS] buffer names

This seems like it would a FAQ, but I couldn't find an asnwer in either the 
manual or on the mailing list: I'm running two instances of R under ESS, and 
the buffers are helpfully named *R* and *R:2*. In addition, the two 
instances are different R versions (2.1.1 and 2.2.1, in my case). Is there 
any way I can get ESS to automatically name the buffer something like *R 
2.2.1* and *R 2.1.1* instead? After all, ESS knows that the R processes come 
from different binaries...

Thanks in advance.
