Thanks to Ben Bolker and Kenneth Knoblauch for their replies. I have
already investigated the "repeated" package --- and got some mileage out
of it, thanks to the assistance of the maintainer, Bruce Swihart.
I was not entirely satisfied with the results, since the software in the
"repeated" package only accommodates a "random intercept", and there is
evidence from investigating the more standard models that can be fitted
using glmer() that a random *slope* is needed as well. Bruce has said
that he *may* be able to incorporate the "random slope" idea, in a sense
that I can make precise in the context of the particular non-linear
model that I have in mind. However it is slowly dawning on me that
making this modification is probably an overwhelmingly difficult task.
I guess that I was naïve in thinking that nlmer might handle it for me.
