If R were to store all its workspace data objects in individual files
instead of one big .RData file, then you could use a revision control
system like SVN. Check out the data, work on it, check it in, then on
another machine just update to get the changes.
However SVN doesn't work too well for binary files - conflicts being
hard to resolve without someone backing down - so maybe its not such a
good idea anyway...
On unix boxes and derivatives, you can keep things in sync efficiently
with the 'rsync' command. I think there are GUI addons for it, and
