check this with -a option, does exactly that! – Aquarius Power Dec 30 '14 at 16:46

try this: -a
that scritpt be found here.

you may need to install its latest dependencies from here.

will do exactly what you said, but you have to be a bit patient waiting it end running, and... that script is experimental but works very fine here.
