A while ago (April 2002) there was a short thread on software for generalized 
linear mixed models. 

Since that time, has anyone written or found R code to use a glmm to analyze 
binomial data?  I study CWD in white-tailed deer, and I'd like to do a 
similar analysis as Kleinschmidt et al. (2001, Am. J. Epidemiology 153: 
1213-1221) used to assess control for spatial structure in malaria incidence 
in South Africa.  They used SAS PROC MIXED in an iterative procedure with a 
poisson model, although due to widely varying sample sizes I'd prefer to 
treat my data as binomial (e.g., CWD pos or neg rather than number of CWD pos
