Dear Alistair,

All of Shafer's packages have been ported to R and are on CRAN. There are 
also some facilities for multiple imputation in the Hmisc package, and in 
the mice package -- not on CRAN, but available at 
<http://www.multiple-imputation.com/>. There are probably other multiple 
imputation facilities in R of which I'm unaware.

I hope that this helps,
