This is not quite correct.  In response to a similar request a few months ago,
I received from J. Christoffel in Germany a piece of code that does this job
quite nicely.  It is free and available to those who ask.

HOWEVER, since we are in the process of getting rid of our Symbolics and I will
probably not be reading this mailing list much longer and since J. Christoffel
does not seem to be reading it very regularly, this (short) piece of code is
looking for a good home from where it could be distributed easily. Any takers?
