Can SeqQuest perform phonon calculations?

I was wondering if SeqQuest can do phonon calculations? If not, then is it being planned?

Peter A. Schultz@ onSeqQuest does not perform phonon calculations directly.

One could use the SeqQuest code to compute the force constant matrix, and then use the resulting dynamical matrix to perform a phonon calculation using a separate code (e.g. PHONON, http://wolf.ifj.edu.pl/phonon/ ). While such a procedure is possible, the scripting/coding that would facilitate the construction of the matrix and transfer it to a phonon code has not been done.

There is no plans to compute phonons directly in SeqQuest. There is an aspiration to create the machinery for the hand-off approach mentioned above, but no immediate volunteers to do it.
