What do you want there: estimation under restrictions or tests of linear
combinations?  The latter is a simple R programming exercise. I don't know
how to do the first easily (nor do I see why I would need to: normally one
can re-parametrize and test nested models via anova),.

MASS has confidence intervals (generic function confint), but again,
a simple R programming exercise for linear models.
