Mount Einstein to Broncolor Para?

I'm really interested in getting the Broncolor Para light modifiers, does anyone know if it is possible to mount a Paul Buff Einstein to the Para's?
I've already got a full set of Einsteins, I would love to add a Para (or more) to my kit, is there some form of adapter that I could get to make that work? Or is that something I could have made? Would the Para support the weight of the Einstein?
Is is this possible? Or am I going to have to save for both the Para's and a set of Broncolor lights / power packs as well?
Einsteins work with the PCB PLMs which are a parabolic. PCB hasn't done much to present how you tune their PLMs like you see in the Para video but it's rather easy. The only downside I've found is the coaxial PCB mount is a little weak (flexes under load) using the 86" PLM. I will likely stiffen the flexing joint with a fiber loaded epoxy paste. A neater option would be to buy a second center plate and stack them losing the lock washers in favor of a thread locker to make the room.
