The survey package of Thomas Lumley has very broad functionality for the 
analysis of data from complex sampling designs. Please find below the 
homepage of the package (which is available on CRAN):


I don't think non-parametric one-way ANOVA is implemented, but


slide 101:

"Many features of the survey package result from requests from
unsatisfied users.

For new methods the most important information is a reference
that gives sufficient detail for implementation. A data set is nice
but not critical."
