FWIW: you can run multiple instances of R.app in the same way RAqua  
used to run multiple instances: using a shell script. The easiest way  
is something like:
cat > /Desktop/R.command
[press Ctrl+D]

Now you can double-click the R.command icon on your desktop and it  
will spawn new instance of R.app every time you do so. (We don't test  
this setup, so your mileage may vary).
