The published version of the paper (Journal of Business & Economic
Statistics 2010) has (will have? not sure if it's published yet) has a
short discussion of fixed effects, and their informal conclusion is that
the asymptotics required for multi-way clustering to be consistent
should also make it possible to use with fixed effects estimators.

-xtivreg2-, downloadable from ssc archives in the usual way, supports
multi-way clustered SEs with fixed effects.
