I'm not familiar with the paper you mention.  Does it require that you
have multiple objective functions or can you incorporate the mutiple
objectives into the representation.  If you can do the latter, you will
find it much less difficult to implement your ga.

If you must implement multiple objectives, if you can implement a
relationship between the two objectives, you could use the Deme classes to
implement your ga.  

Tell us more if you can..

master replied with a question: "Have you finished your rice?"  The
student answered: "Yes, Master."  The master responded: "Then wash
your bowl!"
