[BioC] using timecourse package with non-replicated time course

I have a developmental microarray time course with 18 time points under
one biological condition but no replicates. I would like to rank genes
in order of non-constancy.

The timecourse package seems well suited to this analysis. However, in
the documentation it says nothing about the no replicate case. In Tai
and Speed(1), it seems that the method still works in this special case.
    Does anyone know if the timecourse package can be used in this case?

Thanks a lot,
