Epsilon-Delta proofs

It occurred to me that it might be interesting to write a Mathematica
program that would do epsilon-delta proofs for limits, e.g., prove
that the limit of (x^2-4)/(x-2), as x approaches 2, is 4.  Perhaps
restricting the expressions involved to rational functions.  Has
anybody done something like this?

email replies greatly appreciated
