[R-SIG-Mac] R on Mac: framework or homebrew?

I am using R at the moment installed from the official installation as a
framework, buit I also installed it from homebrew. As I am not using the
Mac GUI (I am using mainly emacs, a little bit RStudio), so from there
there was no difference.

So which approach has which advantages? I can think of advantages when
using homebrew (updates and upgrades of R) and also the framework
approach (Ease of maintenance). 

I personaly lean towards the homebrew installation (linux background),
but are there any disadvantages to using the official framework

Any comments?
