Looks like the reason is that, er, the lme4 package is not available....
Thing is, you can only get packages that way if they have passed the
quality check, and for a package in alpha status, that is not a given.
If you go to
then you see two alternate downloads: A package snapshot and an SVN tree
snapshot. The former currently leads to a build log that seems to have
failed to create a vignette.
