Section 5.1 of the CourseNotes demonstrates how to fit such a model. A
limitation of MCMCglmm if there are >2 time points is that there will
probably be temporal auto-correlation which will not be accounted for
by simply fitting subject as a random effect. ASReml would allow you
to include temporal auto-correlation if needed, and possibly lme.
