Unfortunately, you can't...at least not without wandering way too far 
from upstream's intent.  There are people working on it for TB, but 
additional parts of mozab must take on lots of changes.

Is the current state...it's actually not too far off I'm guessing, but I 
seriously doubt it'll be deemed stable for a 3.0.x release, really 
depends on how fast 3.1(?) branch stabilizes...looking at the length of 
time for 3.0, it might make it in, or this alone could justify a 3.1 
release.
