Software to see k-3 used focus points?

Is it possible to see the actual focus points on an image taken with the K-3? Can the software that comes with the K-3 show the actual used focus points on the image?

I haven't come across anything that would do that with the K-3.

PhotoMe used to be able to graphically show you which Af points were used in earlier Pentaxes in a small thumbnail overlay. But it hasn't been updated for a while though, and it can't handle K-3 images properly. Exiftool also currently does not seem to display AF point data for the K-3, something it used to be able to at least tabulate.

When Apple releases the RAW for the K-3 Aperture will show the focus points till then something else might. Aperture shows them for the K-5.
