[R] aovlmer.fnc, lmer and binomial response

Dear R-users,

I have recently discovered the languageR package and its aovlmer.fnc 
which offers a very slick way to test fixed effects hypotheses in lmer 
models using mcmc.

However, the R help page for aovlmer.fnc states that the lmer object 
must be based a continuous response variable. I take it this means that 
it will not work with family="binomial"? If so, how can I modify it to 
assess binomial response data?

Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
