[R] Decision values from KSVM

I'm working on a project using the kernlab library.

For one phase, I want the "decision values" from the SVM prediction, not the class label. the e1071 library has this function, but I can't find the equivalent in ksvm.

In general, when an SVM is used for classification, the label of an unknown test-case is decided by the "sign" of its resulting value as calculated from the SVM {-,+}
I want the actual values as a proximal representation of the "strength" of the decision. (Further from the hyperplane indicates more confidence)

Any suggestions?
