[S] Variation on Cox proportional hazards

I have data where, rather than proportional hazards, it seems more
plausible that the relative hazards change linearly with time. Is it
possible to fit such models using S-PLUS4.5 survival analysis, or
available library routines? While cox.zph() is able to do something
of this type for testing purposes, I cannot see how one can do the
corresponding estimation problem.
