I doubt it, only a few of the rifles have bayonets.

Well it's a likely feature eventually, but it's a rather complex thing to code.

Whilst it is still a relatively new feature to N&S Hinkel intends to keep it, you know giving people reasons to play his mod and all. Very understandable. He has however been very kind in advice given.

Did Zulus use Canoes ? That would be cool if you implemeted them
a port will save a mans life, a rifle will only keep it safe
