I see here two problems:

a) According to the package name, this works only with the Microsoft VM on
MS platforms. (OK, in the special case of the Cochrane Library (a medical
library)
I'll accept this because it only runns on the Win32 platform...
b) I was looking for a platform-independent solution, and it seems that such a
thing
does (curretly) not exist :-(
