[R-sig-ME] novel correlation structure for nlme package, lme function

Hello my programmer friends.  I am wondering if anyone has written a corStruct for this lme call:

lme(y~time*group, random= ~time|id)

In this call, the covariance structure implied by (time|id) is assumed constant across groups.  We would like to model these random effects separately in the two groups.

Motivation:  In a clinical trail with an _effective_ treatment, response to treatment will  be variable (variance of the random slopes will be greater in the treatment arm).

Thank you in advance for any thoughts where I might find such a corStruct.
