Generalized additive mixed model set up


This is an internal function of package mgcv. It is called by gamm to set up a generalized additive mixed model in a form suitable for fitting by calls to glmmPQL from the MASS library or lme from the nlme library. The main task is the representation of the smooth terms as random effects.
