Actually you are given three options. One is the default df adjustment. The others use the hat matrix in various ways. 

Hmm, I wonder if the other adjustments end up being general versions of common adjustments used in ANOVA Land by ANOVA Man, e.g., Huynh-Feldt for RM? If so this would be a very nice simplification for teaching, replacing a laundry list of adjustments that appear ad hoc from the student's perspective with a lecture on the effect of heteroscedasticity and a useful remedy for it. Time to stare at the equations....
