Maybe I've misunderstood You, but You can manage a single R 
installation on a central server, and let clients hook up to 
it from Emacs+ESS or Eclipse+StatET. I've used both solutions, 
and they work like a charm... The emacs solution uses SSH and 
Eclipse a Java server thingy.

Plz note that I'm from the Linux side of things. So my server 
is a Debian, and my clients are all Ubuntu. I have no clue how 
(or even if) these setups work on windows.
