Yes, it would have been better if I had mentioned in my original reply that it was an omegahat package.  I found it by using help.search() (or ??) where that package was installed on the computer where I did the search.  Looking at the help for setRepositories and packageStatus show one way to see what packages are available from bioconductor and omegahat.

Hope this helps,
