There's a number of ways we can accomplish this, sure.

However, this functionality is not in production yet, and I'm not sure which
upcoming public-inbox features we'll be implementing as a public service, which ones we'll only offer to account
holders, and which ones should really be running locally by developers

So, I don't want to say either yes or no to this one for the fear of
over-promising. I guess this is why I'm not in sales. :)
