Sure, in trunk it is possible, using extensions. The best "example" is
the testcode in test_buffer.hpp

Let me know if I can help more, I did plan to work in this in the near
future again.

It is not yet ready, there are some issues, you may encounter them, but
depending on your cases it might be useful for you.

I cannot yet say when it will be in Release.
