gopro as usb webcam

It's probably a silly question, or one that was already asked, but is it possible to use the nice GoPro's as webcams for things like Skype or similar via a simple USB cable? if not, is it a marketing choice, or is there any technical issue? I guess the image quality and frame rate would be pretty good, surely much better than common laptop webcams, and it would add another reason to buy these nice gadgets. Is it a driver problem? Would it be difficult to use it e.g. on Linux for this purpose?
