Ballistic Solutions and Aerodynamic Jump

Most ballistic solution gadgets and ballistic software solutions, I have reviewed, does not correct for aerodynamic jump. The vertical bullet deflection caused by aerodynamic jump due to wind may be significant at long range. Bryan Litz has developed a very accurate estimation of aerodynamic jump, but, except for Rainov, nobody - to my knowledge - has incorporated aerodynamic jump into their solution. I wonder why!
This issue is of importance to me as I shoot in a very flat environment with high winds most of year. I would be grateful to hear from you regarding your solution to solving this problem. Thank you.
