Confidence intervals for Jaccard Similarity?

Hoping that someone is googling for the right terms here:

Anyone out there know how to calculate a confidence interval around an estimate of the Jaccard similarity coefficient?

For Pearson correlation you can use Fisher's Z-prime Transformation, but I can't quite figure a principled way of doing the same for Jaccard similarity.
