centerpull bosses

Hey all
I'm building up a mountain bike with roller-cam brake bosses (a 1988 Schwinn High Sierra that I purchased from a fellow BFer ), and was curious about different options for the brakes. I know you can put u-brakes on the bosses since they sit above the rim; does anyone know if you can put classic centerpull brakes (Mafac racers?) on them as well?

Thanks
