Try <duncan at wald.ucdavis.edu>.
I am afraid you do need to install the package from the sources for use
under a later version of R than that used for www.omegahat.org.

If you need to use the binaries on www.omegahat.org, you need to use R <
2.0.0, and I keep 1.9.1 installed for such uses (Bioconductor, too).
