No, not yet. Making a FEM method on an unstructured mesh explicit is not
a piece of cake (you have to diagonalize your matrix, and this can not
be done with arbitrary non orthogonal meshes). The only "simple" thing
would be to consider orthognal meshes, but that goes against our aim of
generality for the code...

I have just posted a small PML example on the list. You can maybe adapt
it to fit your needs.
