It's definitely possible, and I also know it's a somewhat highly demanded feature. I don't follow development of the application too closely but I know more wallet management/backup features are widely requested, and the ability to send and receive bitcoins in less than 0.01 increments.  Also, this is the type of feature you could implement yourself, or hire someone to implement.
