P.S. I have patched the Sweave bundle's 'Sweave,Typeset and View' command
with following:

# get the Sweave driver option
DRIVER=`grep -e '^%!TEX Sweave' "$TM_FILEPATH" | sed 's/.*=//g'`

if [ -n "$DRIVER" ]; then
	echo -e "setwd('$SW')\nSweave('$TM_FILEPATH', driver=$DRIVER)" | R
--no-restore --no-save --quiet | pre
	echo -e "setwd('$SW')\nSweave('$TM_FILEPATH')" | R --no-restore --no-save
--quiet | pre

This replaces the previous R invocation and works reasonably well. Usage is:

%!TEX Sweave= my_driver

Maybe someone could patch it to the official repo...
