[BioC] parallel BAM sorting with Rsamtools

samtools now allows the sorting of bam files using several threads. This is incredibly useful for large BAM files, e.g. from whole-genome projects. 
Are there any plans of exposing the parallel sorting via Rsamtools' sortBam() and  asBam(..., indexDestination=TRUE)?

I couldn't find any mention of this in the mailing lists or elsewhere...
