Matlab's rosmatlab i/o extension and service calls

I've successfully set up Matlab's "official" io extension for working with ROS nodes and can successfully publish and listen to ROS nodes under Matlab. Sometimes however, we want to be able to call upon services. Matlab's documentation makes no mention of services and examples are sparse.

I've tried treating services as suscribable and have tried sending messages to them. Some services require multiple input types however and it is unclear how to do this under Matlab.

For the sake of completeness, I am running ROS on linux 64-bit, as well as Matlab 2013a. The ROS nodes run under linux and I can contact them/publish/subscribe from Matlab just fine. I'm just asking how to deal with service calls.

Can anyone please answer the question of how to use services from Matlab using their recent rosmatlab extension package please?

It seems it has not been developed yet. I have the same problem.
