There are some comments in Robert Haining's 2003 book "Spatial Data 
Analysis", Cambridge University Press, both for modelling in general 
terms, and for degrees of freedom correction. His bibliography is very 
extensive, and will repay study. There is some code for so-called 
simultaneous autoregressive models in spdep, for those and conditional 
autoregressive models in the S-PLUS Spatial Stats module, and some Matlab 
code at www.spatial-econometrics.com. But I'd think looking through 
Haining's book would be the place to start. Please report back if you find 
some worthwhile ideas, possibly via the R-sig-geo list (access via
