I will look into it. It is possible to add support for it, as long as the add-on is installed by the user. No promise at this point, since I do not know if it even works in 2.80. Please feel free to contact the dev to see if he plans to support 2.80.
It would be tedious to maintain an external add-on for me, unless there is a lot of interest at this point. Yours was the first request.
