[R] post-hoc test (glht?) which takes treatment into account not just explanatory variable overall

1. Sounds like you want to test the **interaction** of song type and treatment.

2. Does glht  work ( S3 vs S4 class issues) with lmer fits?

3. If it works, does glht give sensible results? (see Doug Bates's
discussions on this issue).

4. Probably best to direct all such questions to the R-sig-mixed-models list.

"Men by nature long to get on to the ultimate truths, and will often
be impatient with elementary studies or fight shy of them. If it were
possible to reach the ultimate truths without the elementary studies
usually prefixed to them, these would not be preparatory studies but
superfluous diversions."
