While browsing MathSource at the Mathematica web site (www.wolfram.com)
today, I happened come across a package that may be what you're after. 
The package for Mathematica version 3.x is NDelayDSolve.m and can be
found in MathSource as Enhancements/Numerical/0209-102.

I hope this is useful to you.
Cheers,
   Bill
