This is the second time within 24 hours that you cross-posted the same
question to two of the R mailing lists, please read the posting guide
linked at the bottom of this mail on how to properly ask your questions.
As for your question: I'm not aware of an R package that would be able to
do what you are looking for, but you might also ask the maintainer of the
package you're specifically interested in for more details.
