R-alpha: names for .RData

It would be nice for the save file name .RData to be a variable in
config.site (unless the machine-independent files are coming very soon). 
We are currently running R on a cluster with both sparc-solaris and
intel-linux machines, which don't like each other's .RData files.  At the
moment I edit the source files by hand to change the name to .RData-linux.

On a related topic, has anyone given any more thought to installing
multiple binaries in the same directory tree (as suggested some time ago
by Greg Warnes)?  This could save quite a lot of space as well as making
it easier to keep different operating systems synchronised.
