In theory (since we have source code), yes :)

"Easier said than done", unfortunately :( I took a kick at this a few
months back, and ran into some Really Hard chicken-and-egg problems
(ignoring the 'configuration before really having a filesystem' issues).
I do intend to keep poking at this until it does eventually work, but I
can't guarantee a time-frame for success at this point :(
(One of the problems was a circular dependency between having kernel threads
and having a / filesystem. You currently need / before you can get threads,
but I need the threads for RAIDframe in order to get / working :( )
