comment Making Homebrew and R.app live together happily
Yes, I just do not install tcl/tk from R (I have no need of them) -- if you download the R dmg from CRAN and you run the installer you can customise which packages are actually installed

comment How can I install themes for Terminal?
Use ITerm2 (which is free btw), not Terminal -- ITerm2 offers many more options, and lets you split windows.

comment How to use /etc/paths.d to add executable files to my path?
Adding stiff to /etc/paths.d works for me, but I restart whatever terminal application I am using (ITerm2 in my case) for the new path to take effect

comment Press and hold for accents does not work everytime
I can report that the problem of press and hold giving accented alternatives/not doing so at random is present for me, on OS 10.9.2 (installed on a newly formatted disk).

comment Making Homebrew and R.app live together happily
@bmike for me safe means 'no random stuff happening'. I plan to use Homebrew to get stuff like gcc, gsl python 3 and ffmpeg. Aside from python 3 I doubt any other program I might install through Homebrew will use TCL or TK libraries (and python 3 might also not care).
