[R-sig-ME] Is anyone using the lmList() function in the lme4 package?

Hi All

  While it is very easy to write a function to perform the tasks of
lmList(), from the point of view of teaching students who are still
learning to write their own functions, it sometimes helps to have a
function that already does it well. I use lmList() as I teach, for
similar reasons as were mentioned earlier in this thread. So I "vote"
to keep it.
