The OPTION,ITRDM=1 option for the CI program is recognized by the RS2
program, but doesn't seem to do anything when run.
The RS2 program outputs the following
1PROGRAM * RS2 (Multireference RS Perturbation Theory) Authors: H.-J.

And that's it. By this point, I'm fairly certain that you have to mess with
the source code if you want to get MS-CASPT2 transition moments.
