```You can do (1) and (2) [with some additional coding] using mvspec.R, which
scroll down to the Spectral Envelope section and you'll find it there.  You
can look at the top part of the examples to get an idea of how to use
mvspec.R ... once you have the  spectral matrix estimate, you can code up
the extraction of the partial coherence and so on.
