Not at the moment.  Soon it will be, we hope...

Hmmm.  You can mount it in the installer, but it won't recognize the
Misc type.  You need to reassign it as either Root&Usr or Root for
it to be a root filesystem.  The MacOS will not recognize the partition
at all, but the Installer will, and you can use it to copy files into
the unix partition (cpin), or copy files out to the mac filesystem
