There's is a preliminary support, but it crashes and doesn't work. So
in short: no, there's no such support.
Yes, it's planned to add support for it. FFmpeg just need someone to
do it, and do it right! :)

Maybe a bounty could be placed on that?

The reference decoder _could_ be used as a start, but I suppose that
for legal  issues (let alone performance), it can't be just copy and
pasted. More here:
