Well, we've talked about it a lot but it isn't on a roadmap anywhere. Is there a JIRA issue for it?
One thing we've talked about was having Shader extend Paint (or Effect). I think maybe if a shader extended Effect it would fit into our system fairly naturally?
Of course we're only talking about fragment shaders here. But once we make something like that available I suspect people will also want geometry shaders soon after.
