Monero and multisig - is it possible?

Is it technically possible (as in, can the protocol support) multisignature addresses?

I realize the current wallet options don't mention anything on this direction, so if the protocol allows for, there probably isn't any implementation allowing for it to be used so far.

But just to know if it's possible or not makes a big difference. I honestly believe this is a critical feature for security. Alternative options are not safe, as you either have to have full control of your coins yourself (and non-tech users cannot be expected to) or you must entirely trust a "crypto-bank", what has been proven not to be safe multiple times already.

Perhaps a more generic version of my question would be: are address in Monero similar to Bitcoin in what they allow for a generic script to be inserted, and whoever proves to have what it takes to successfully run the script can spend it?

Thank you.

Crossposting my reddit comment:

It's under currently being researched :) See ->

However, If I recall correctly they are quite tough with mandatory mixin > 3 being enforced in the future (opposed to multi sigs with mixin = 0, which aren't that hard if I recall correctly), but they will figure it out :)

I think it's easily doable with zero-mixin, but is tricky with >0 mixin. The MRO guys might be working on it.

Is there any discussion somewhere you could link me to? Thank you!

Not that I know of, perhaps @fluffypony could clarify.
