Joe,

During the early stages of FB^3 development Staz had planned to add this
feature to the compiler. I haven't seen a recent(since FB^3 was made
available to the list) "official" response from Staz on this topic (it has
been mentioned a few times recently although the question might have been
buried in another topic) and the compiler doesn't seem to do this in its
current incarnation.
