None Variance Techniques for charged particles

Hi,

  I've been reading up on Geant4's variance reduction techniques and just want to verify some things that I think I understand.

It seems that if your beam consists solely of charged particles, then Geant4's variance reduction techniques will not work, EXCEPT for using the reverse/adjoint monte carlo. Scoring/roulette/weightwindow/etc do nothing for charged particles in geant as of now.

Is this true and if not, can someone point me to examples of these techniques for charged particles?

If this is true, is there a timescale for when this will be possible?

Tom.
