No one has really tried it.  It's not clear if the data could be saved 
fast enough, or even if the software support is setup for that sort of 
thing yet (e.g., saving raw files).  This could be pretty hard.

If you want to try it ahead of time I can lend you a machine.  But I 
think it would be more of an interesting experiment than a good way to 
figure out this particular problem.  The record activity itself really 
doesn't have any interface to do this sort of thing, though maybe it's 
possible to install (via yum) whatever is necessary to do this.
