No, at least not officially. There is a hack in the coupling code which 
should make it possible to use, but neither I nor anybody else has 
really tested it... One problem is that it isn't obvious what it does 
to the true NPT ensemble (which is the only real advantage of P-R 
coupling), so I would probably stick to berendsen for surface tension
