Sorry for my lazy question :

   What does the package do that lmer() does not?

I do know that you are a smart person so I know I will get a non-trivial answer. The main reason for this e-mail is really to encourage you (and all other 'R-packages' posters) to do the following in each posting to R-packages:

  1. [One paragraph:] What does the package do // why do you see a need for the package // what's the bigger context ?
  2. [another paragraph (or two...):] News etc

Since the R-packages archives are relatively prominently listed as part of "News" on the R project website, (and also since I encourage ``everyone'' to subscribe to R-packages,)

I think the extra information in "1)" above would be appropriate for every posting to R-packages.
