Is it possible to add vector tile sources (using MapBox's protocol buffers format, or GeoJSON, or otherwise) to QGIS? If so, how?

(My question is a bit similar to Can the new Mapbox Vector Tiles be used as a QGIS basemap? but isn't restricted to MapBox sources, and isn't just about basemaps or OpenLayers.)


this plugin is still work in progress, and only works on Linux, but allows you to read mapbox vector tiles : https://github.com/geometalab/Vector-Tiles-Reader-QGIS-Plugin

The plugin mentioned above is now being develop from another developer and runs on Windows and Ubuntu. It's still experimental but a working version is expected in June.
