I've a question about the RandomForest package.

The package allows the extraction of a variable importance measure. As far as
I could see from the documentation, the computation is based on the Gini index.

Do you know if this extraction can be also based on other criteria? In particular,
I'm interested in the info gain criterion.

Best regards,
