Currently, no, and it's not on the current list of plans. I'd consider it if anyone sent me a patch, though.

Right now drones are exclusively light-weight capture-and-send, without processing the packets at all. It would be a bit of a security model change to have them start dissecting, as well as a major processor and ram requirement change.
