A paper by Fabrigar (Psychological Methods, 1999, 4(3):272-299) suggests the 
use of the Roomt Mean Square Error of Approximation (RMSEA) or the Expected 
Cross-Validation Index (ECVI) for determining the number of factors to retain 
in a factor analysis.  Has anyone written an ado for this?  Know of other 
packages that produce it?
