Just saw this thread after posting my own question.  It is possible to 
get Texworks to work with Synctex to an Rnw file, using the patchDVI 
package I wrote.  (It's on R-forge in 

patchDVI reads information from the Sweave output about the concordance 
between Rnw lines and tex lines, and patches the Synctex file so that 
reverse search works properly.  I wrote it for use with a different 
editor than Texworks, and am just now trying to find the best way to use 
it from Texworks.  I've got it working fine on small projects where 
there is just one file, but it is not handling the case of multi-chapter 
projects properly (hence my other message).
