You can *probably* get this behavior by changing the permissions on
your R.framework directory. By default, I think it's set to:
drwxrwxr-x 9 root admin 306 Jun 29 10:39 /Library/Frameworks/
Since the RSwitch program monkeys around with which symlinks point to
what in that folder, you'll need admin rights to use it.
I'm guessing that if you chown or chgrp that directory such that your
logged in user has the rights to change stuff in there, you can then
use the app as a non admin .. w/o an app update :-)
