Does the Gradle Integration for Eclipse yet allow direct debugging of a Gradle script?

If I have a Gradle script and the Gradle Integration for Eclipse, is there any ability to set breakpoints in the script and step through the script in the debugger? I believe that I can step through my own custom task or plugin classes. I assume that would also mean that I could step through provided task or plugin classes (not written by me)? Is it possible to step through the execution of the build script itself? I have a feeling the answer is no, I just want a clear statement of the capabilities here.

I don’t have a specific requirement for any of this yet, I’m just trying to argue for the introduction of Gradle into my (large) enterprise, and I want to have all the big pluses verified.

You can step through classes, but not currently through build scripts.
