[R-sig-ME] Fixing phylogenetic heritability in MCMCglmm

Dear list,

Does anyone know how to fix the heritability of the phylogenetic random
effect in MCMCglmm in a way that is the equivalent to fixing the
phylogenetic signal lambda to 1?

I want all the variance attributed to phylogeny to remain fixed and
unaffected by additional random effects, i.e., I want the additional random
effects to work on the residual variance once phylogeny is accounted for.

many thanks,
