No, but it is on the todo list.  First we need generic interfaces for
this.  Support for this should not be limited to ext2.  I even think
this should not even be limited to filesystems, but sometimes
partitions or even disks can have UUIDs too.  In that case we should,
IMO, make that information available as well.
