Thanks for your interest in Tremolo.  We have made a package available,
but not yet announced it, because there are a few known issues we'd like
to still fix first.  Announcement and updated package are to follow real
soon now.

I'll make sure there is a non-equilibration example in the tree, and at
least a bit of documentation for the add-on tools.

At this time, such a thing does not exist, unfortunately.  Most
algorithmic details are explained in the published book, and we're
working on a docbook-style document for the simulation code.
