There is a thread on the dev list recently where we are discussing this very thing. See here:

We are looking at implementing LISP which has the same requirement as GTPv1-U. From what Jesse has indicated, this is a large amount of work at this point. We would be happy to collaborate with you on these changes however. Unicast me if this is something you'd like to pursue.

Thanks,
Kyle
