No, it's a someday-wishlist item; the work involved is not small.

Slony1 has supported log-shipping replication for about a year now. It

1) It's not possible for a PITR 'slave' to fall behind to a state where it will never catch up, unless it's just on inadequate hardware. Same isn't true with slony.
2) PITR handles DDL seamlessly
3) PITR is *much* simpler to configure and maintain
