Creating an IK rig with more than 3 points

I'm trying to figure out a way to create a multi-point bone rig inside of After Effects. In the 3d packages I use, it is easy to make longer IK chains (spines, dog legs, etc). However, I can't find a way to do it in After Effects. I would normally just rig and animate in 3ds max (or alternative) and be done with it, but I need to do it in AE for this project.
I use the wonderful Duik plugin for simple, 3-point rigs (http://duduf.net/?page_id=151). However, I don't think it can do more. I really just need 4 points, so more than shoulder/elbow/wrist. Any ideas? I've been banging my head against the wall on this one.
