[R] Distances between two datasets of x and y co-ordinates

How do I use nncross to measure min distances between point patterns i,j,
ENSURING each point in pattern i is only connected to a single partner
point in pattern j ?
I do realise that there are many possible pairings between the i-j point
pairs... perhaps some average min distance for many pairings would be
better. Alternatively pairings could be randomly assigned.
Basically, i am tracking a population of moving objects over time, and want
to indirectly estimate the collective movement- which might be better
estimated by telling nncross to randomly assign (somehow) paired nearest
neighbour distances ; 1-to-1 rather than many-to-one.
