Yes -- one of our very first, high priority ideas for an LCB-based 
project.  I even made a start on it, and I have an internal project [1] 
that would really benefit from it.  However, it's not yet technically 
possible, I'm afraid.

I expect the necessary LCB language features to appear in a LiveCode 8.x 
release, where x > 0.  Some of them are floating around in Mark 
Waddingham's GitHub repository in various states of completion.
