  i'm sorry, i didn't mean to drag this out ... i did, in fact, try
exactly that and concluded that there was no such package, until i
googled and found others claiming that there *was* such a package, so
i ran off trying to verify that, etc, etc.

  never mind ... the consensus is that no such package exists.
