[R] Clustering Question (Support Vector Clustering)

I am currently designing a clustering algorithm in collaboration with one of my colleagues. For comparison purposes we would like to contrast it with the Support Vector Clustering algorithm of (A. Ben-Hur, D. Horn, H.T. Siegelmann, and V. Vapnik. Support vector clustering. Journal of Machine Learning Research, 2:125-137, 2001).  

This is supposedly the most powerful unsupervised clustering algorithm available. Unfortunately, we cannot find code for it anywhere. We have tried emailing the authors and they cannot find the code either (one of them has not answer yet). I was wondering, perhaps someone in the R community has implemented it or knows about some implementation for it. We really do not want to implement it ourselves because this will probably delay our paper considerably.  

One more thing, I am talking about Support vector clustering not classification, algorithms for that we could find in abundance.  

Thank you for any help.
