Sort of. 

2.7.1 includes a feature which product developers can use
to stream data directly from the filesystem faster than current
solutions (and fast enough to saturate a T3, so there's probably 
no point in going faster :-).  

But it depends on the product to take advantage of it, by
returning a special iterator instead of a string; and
- notably - it's unsafe to do database reads inside the iterator.
So it's really only good for stuff that is stored or cached
on the filesystem.

We did write a filesystem cache that uses this feature.
That might be what you're thinking of.
