No.  And see the notes in the FAQ at 

At present the range of R versions you can switch between is very 
limited since the R <--> R.app interface has been changing.  For 
example, you cannot switch between any of 2.15.2, R-patched and R-devel, 
and AFAIR you cannot switch between 2.15.1 and 2.15.2.  Once 3.0.0 is 
out this should be stabler as now all of R.app is in the R.app sources 
and none in the R sources and it uses only API R headers.

I have a copy of the dmg, but not the sources, and I believe that Simon 
lost both when r.research.att.com got corrupted.
