(setq ess-s-versions-list
       '( ("R64" "/usr/bin/R64")
          ("R32" "/usr/bin/R32")))
works.  The buffer for R64 is however called *S+6*.  No doubt there is
some variable that one can set that will fix this; I have not investigated.  

One can have defvar in place of setq.  Does it matter which one uses?
