[R] Multilevel models with binary data

I have been using lme to model data with multiple nested random effects and
continuous response variables however I also have data with a binary
response variable, binomial errors and multiple levels of nesting of random
effects (e.g. site/block/quadrat/year), is there a package available which
will do this?  Jim Lindsey's package "repeated" appears to be only able to
cope with 2 levels of nesting.

Also I have been looking at the GLMMGibbs package but cannot locate the
document "GLMMGibbs: An R Package for Estimating Bayesian Generalised Linear
Mixed Models by Gibbs Sampling"  which is supposed to be distributed with
the package.  Does anyone have this or can they tell me where to find it?
