Defines functions extract.lmeDesign

Documented in extract.lmeDesign

#' Extract the Design of a linear mixed model
#' 
#' These functions extract various elements of the design of a fitted
#' \code{lme}-, \code{mer} or \code{lmerMod}-Object.  They are called by
#' \code{exactRLRT} and \code{exactLRT}.
#' 
#' 
#' @aliases extract.lmerModDesign extract.lmeDesign
#' @param m a fitted \code{lme}- or \code{merMod}-Object
#' @return a a list with components
#' \itemize{
#' \item \code{Vr} estimated covariance of the random effects divided by the
#' estimated variance of the residuals
#' \item \code{X} design of the fixed effects
#' \item \code{Z} design of the random effects
#' \item \code{sigmasq} variance of the residuals
#' \item \code{lambda} ratios of the variances of the random effects and the
#' variance of the residuals
#' \item \code{y} response variable
