That is a decent way of doing what I am suggesting. Probably too
complicated to be worth it if I am just changing one variable.

Yet another candidate for (yet another) pre-processing step. :)
Of course, you could load the complicated bits in another file with
source(). You'd still have to redefine <<single>> and <<double>>
everywhere, but at least you would be able to change the option settings
easily. Like this:
<<single, echo=F, eval=F>>=
setup.single() # loaded from init.R
