I use Sweave routinely.  As it has no effect on what you are writing  
(other than table/figure references) you can just write your LaTeX  
document as normal, interweave the Sweave code, and just keep on  
writing.  Change your mind about the analysis/tables/figures?, just  
adjust the R (Sweave) code, and all is automagically changed in your  
document.  Whether you then adjust the LaTeX text to reflect the  
*meaning* of those changes is up to you, but all the heavy lifting  
otherwise is already done.
