I calculate a Bayesian logistic regression with the function MCMClogit from the package MCMCpack.

After the calculation I use the package CODA to test the model in respect to convergence.

Is there a compatible package to calculate the BIC (bayesian information criterion)? So that it is possible to write BIC(mcmc object) with an mcmc object from the function MCMClogit.

I found the package nlme, but the function BIC in this package does not work with the mcmc object from the function MCMClogit.
