[R] enhanced multidimensional scaling?

Dear R list

Would anyone be able to tell me whether it is possible to do "enhanced multidimensional scaling" (enhanced MDS) in R? In other words, something that goes beyond "cmdscale" by iteratively improving the fit between observed dissimilarities and inter-object distances, using the KYST algorithm (Kruskal, 1964).

I have found several implementations of non-metric MDS in various packages but nothing like what I have described above.

Thanks in advance
