I am not an expert on King's method, or on ecological inference in general.

However, I think that the following citation may be of interest:

McCue, KF (2001), "The Statistical Foundations of the EI Method", _The American Statistician_, 55: 106-110. Here is a quote of part of the abstract: "This article shows that EI is in fact an application of the standard statistical theory of prediction...." The point is that you MAY not need special code.
