Yes. On Ronja someone has done unofficial RX with SMT components and
people are building it. However it sux hard because is designed in Protel
and has number of flaws because of which I can't merge it into the main
design (especially it's mechanically incompatible with the mechanics) and
I am unable to edit it because it isn't in PCB.

So I am going to make abother one some day, this time usable :)
