[R] ANOVA for proportions with large mass on an extreme of [0, 1]

My queries are directly related to R:
1. Can the R package frm can be used to compare nested models. If so, how.
2. Are there alternative R packages to perform ANOVAs on a dependent variable
that is a proportion with significant mass one one extreme?
Also, my statistical problem is well defined (i.e., perform an ANOVA, ideally
considering repeated measures, on a dependent variable that is a proportion),
there is substantial literature addressing this problem (see some old and
newer articles below), and I am just looking for help on R packages
implementing the functionality described in this literature.
I believe my statistical problem is not complex. After all, ANOVAs are one of
the most common types of statistical analysis, and proportions frequently
appear in statistical problems.
I just wanted to get some feedback from R users with expertise performing
ANOVAs on proportions. I trust that my statistical problem is not rare, that
several R users have worked on this problem, and that I will get very useful
feedback from them. If I get this feedback, it will show that my question is
no OT. Let's see what happens ...

Tak fyr, and ber it in the derkeste hous
Bitwix this and the Mount of Caucasus,
And lat men shette the dores and go thenne,
Yet wol the fyr as faire lye and brenne,
As twenty thousand men mighte it biholde:
His office naturel ay wol it holde,
Up peril of my lyf, til that it dye.
