[Mesquitelist] correlated evolution test for non-binary discrete traits?

I was wondering if anyone knows of a correlated evolution test for discrete traits that can accommodate traits with more than 2 states? If so, is there software available to perform it?
It seems as though Maddison's concentrated changes test and Pagel's maximum likelihood test cannot. Sillen-Tullberg's contingent states test claims to be be applicable to multiple state traits but I can't seem to find any examples of this. If anyone knows of anything and would be willing to share I'd really appreciate it.
