Dear Simon,

you can essentially do an analogous analysis (in two stages) using the
"bayesmeta" package. Doing the one-stage meta-regression approach is
not (yet) possible with bayesmeta, but it should be possible via
"rjags" (of required).

For the two-stage approach, we then only need to use a normal
approximation for the results from the 1st-stage analyses and proceed
from there.

I attached some example R code based on the quoted "metafor" example.
