Hmm. Shouldn't be all that much faster, but it will produce the Type I
SS as you go along, whereas R probably wants to fit the 15 different
I'm still surprised that R/S-PLUS manages to use a full 15 minutes on
a single response variable. It might be due to the singularities --
the SAS code indicated that there was a nesting issue with the "A"
factor in the last 4-factor interaction. If so, a reformulation of the
model might help.
