This is very interesting, thanks. Can you recommend a quick survey that relates
this to modern mixed effects modelling techniques, preferably using R? The
best survey that I have found so far is G.K. Robinson, "That BLUP is
a Good Thing: The Estimation of Random Effects," but there is no
discussion of software there.

I am particularly interested to know if this subject area has anything to say
about risk management (in finance and insurance, say), or if it is primarily
concerned with classification, heritability, and related notions.
