There is no generally agreed upon notion of random effects for quantile
regression applications. Insofar as one is willing to accept the
random effects are just "shrunken fixed effects" one can consider
schemes in the QR context; one such is described in
“Quantile Regression for Longitudinal Data,” J. of Multivariate
(2004), 91, 74-89.
But there are many open questions, so this is not for the faint hearted
and there is certainly no "official" code.
