Good question, I'll include r-sig-geo as well.
actually the prediction equations you end up with are kind of funny, and
I've never seen them written out. Two different covariance matrices
Package gstat can do the two-step approach: global BLUE, then simple
kriging of residual, but that ignores the correlation of both terms,
I'm quite sure that if you do Gaussian simulation however with gstat,
the trend is fitted globally (and simulated from the corresponding GLS
mean & covariance), whereas the kriging is done locally, so that should
result in realisations that have the variance you want. You just have to
compute the average and variance, to get estimates of the kriging mean
and variance you're looking for. Also, it might be computationally
demanding, both in time and space (memory).
