[R-SIG-Mac] Darwin open and '--vanilla' for R.app

I have a number of configurations in my .Rprofile that are run when I start R.app. I typically start R.app from a Terminal...
$ open -a R
... which nicely reads my .Rprofile as R.app starts.
On occasion I wish to enter R in the '--vanilla' state. Right now I do that by starting a command line version ...
$ R --vanilla
... which starts a command line instance of R. That is fine except that I regret the loss of the nice R.app interface while I stumble around on the command line. So, I wonder if there is a way to start R.app in a similar way - that is start R.app without reading any of the user configurations. I have tried tricks like the following without success.
$ open -a R --args '--vanilla'
I don't see any hints about in the R-SIG-Mac help archives nor it here...
