This is not necessarily true. That is a good measure, but see: (self-promotion mode on)

Lacy, M. 2006. "An Explained Variation Measure for Ordinal Response Models with Comparisons to Other Ordinal R2 Measures." Sociological Methods and Research 34:469-520.

For software (not sufficiently documented to merit submission to SSC):

I did find, however, in parallel to what Richard Williams suggests in another post, that while various ordinal pseudo-R^2 fit measures might differ in their ability to approximate an underlying linear model R^2, all the various measures have pretty comparable performance as aids to model selection.
