configuring storage backend per bucket?

Is there a way to configure Riak to use say a memory-only storage  
backend for particular buckets while using say disk-backed storage for  
yet other buckets?

My use case is such that some data volatile yet should be stored with  
"best effort" but with an emphasis on efficiency.  If this data were  
lost due to a system failure it wouldn't be catastrophic.

As I understand it I can use a low DW value for such data.  Perhaps  
that's all I need.

I could use a cache-like system (Memcached, Redis, etc.) but I am  
trying to avoid the administrative overhead and complexity using  
multiple datastores.
