Yes, it is possible :)

By definition, a new upstream release of pcmanfm will need to be
packaged before it can appear in a PPA or in Oneiric.  So you have two
options if you want a package of the current libfm and pcmanfm code:

 (1) go ahead and package it now, yourself, in your own PPA, or

 (2) wait for someone else to package it.

Right now, as far as I know, no-one has done that work, so this new code
is currently only available from git, for those comfortable compiling
and installing it directly from sources.

Once things settle down slightly, it will be packaged.  I may have a
quick go at packaging libfm and pcmanfm from their respective git trees
somewhere in the couple of days, but no promises :)  I don't have much
time available for doing this right now, unfortunately.
