Many of the plot functions in nlme require the Trellis displays which
are only in SPlus. There are some plans to develop a similar package
("lattice") for R, but they are not advancing very quickly. Re. the
dist function, the one in the mva library seems usable in some
circumstances, but even with that the variograms (just calculating
them) didn't seem to work for me.

If you have ideas for how to make useful plotting commands for nlme in
R, I'm sure the nlme developers would like to know about them. It's
likely to be a rather large undertaking, though, and the nlme
developers are for the same reason well excused for skipping these
issues in the R version.
