I don't think so, no. But it shouldn't be too hard to do that. It is

It is in the LDP cvs. I am just putting our utilities up for download.
Check the "Downloads" link on our home page and it should be there
today. I'm going to go tar it up and post it right now. But I have to
also write a man page and other stuff like that to make it properly

I won't do the update to the new format. I'm just swamped with work.
But if you do update it, please send me the revised version so I can
diff it and update our version.
